Theatre Absolute are delighted to present the UK’s first Shop Front Festival, in Coventry city centre on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 March.
The Shop Front Festival will feature some of the UK’s most exciting new and established theatre makers and performers including local artists and organisations as well as artists from further afield. Public spaces across the city centre will come alive with a variety of different theatre shows with activities for all age groups – join a trail though the city, take part in a melodrama and don’t forget to join England’s favourite shopping pastime: queuing!
On Friday 23rd March, Dan Thompson from the Empty Shops Network joins a panel to ask: Does this stuff make any difference? Speakers and audience will explore the role of culture, arts and creativity in relation to place and place making.
