Incoming Festival celebrates the best emerging theatre companies from across the UK and beyond. Offering a platform for emerging theatre companies to have their work shown in London, Incoming Festival gives audiences the chance to see the most explosive companies at the forefront of theatre-making. All the companies presented during Incoming Festival define themselves as “emerging”, be it in their performance work, as a company or within the industry.

Incoming Festival aims to bring audiences and theatre companies together for a shared adventure. The unknown excitement of an emerging company can reveal great beauty and that feeling of finding a real gem. Incoming Festival brings you the most dynamic and exciting companies we can find. We believe in the future of theatre and we present a small taste of what’s to come.

The first Incoming Festival took place 19-25 May 2014 at the New Diorama Theatre, to full houses and securing a nomination for Best Producers at the Off West End Awards.

Incoming Festival is produced by A Younger Theatre. #IncomingFestival
