Meets The Flare Weekender

####In Brief

Presented in collaboration with Word of Warning’s Sampler Series, The Flare Weekender is a microfestival of new performance from across Europe with ten works by current & future stars of local, national and international theatre; plus live music, artist-led workshops, discussions, a cabaret and a closing party.

After the 2011’s Flare International Festival of New Theatre, The Flare Weekender is doing it all again, but this time in one place in just two days…
