Outpost 2015 | Commission Call Out

We’re currently busying ourselves with curating the programme for Outpost 2015.  We’ve been chatting to a number of artists from across the country and already have some incredible work pencilled to come to Outpost this year (more on that shortly!). But, as anyone who popped down last year will know, touring shows only take up[…]

Outpost 2015 – A Sneak Peek…

Around a week and a half ago, we found out we’ve been successful in securing funding from Arts Council England to support our Outpost season in 2015.  We’ll once again be working with Urban Splash and the Barbican Theatre to turn a space in the Royal William Yard into a pop-up theatre venue, programming a[…]

We’ve been a little quiet recently (especially in comparison to the two months we spent positively bellowing about Outpost) and it’s likely to stay that way for the next month or so.

A Change of Plans…

Running Outpost at the Royal William Bakery has been great fun, but not without it’s challenges – we’ve been working hard since day one to transform a working bakery into a theatre for each evening’s performance.
