Festival Details


Thursday, 12 November 2015 to Saturday, 21 November 2015



Questioning. Quirky. But rarely Quiet.

Outburst is back to offer you some serious Queer goodness with a big glittering Q.

In a year when there's been a massive appetite for change all around us (Marriage Equality to the south, Corbyn to the east) this year's programme shines a spotlight on a changing LGBTQ landscape, both at home and abroad, to ask 'who are we now and what does queer mean in 2015 and beyond?'

From the LGBTQ communities, activists and artists of the past to today's visionary queer performers who are opening up a whole new world of ideas, Outburst aims to deliver a festival that inspires some answers and provokes even more inspiring questions.

Stay Q-urious.
