The great British Weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of the 121 delegates that spent a weekend in the seaside town of Great Yarmouth for the second edition of the XTRAX / Out There International Festival showcase. 

Out There Festival draws on Great Yarmouth’s seaside heritage to bring the very best British and European outdoor arts and circus to one of the UK’s best-known coastal towns. It is here that guests were invited to attend SeaChange Arts’s International Symposium, a special delegate-only presentation of IOU Theatre’s Rear View, XTRAX Shorts, a delegates breakfast hosted by ISAN, all alongside an action-packed weekend of the very best circus and street arts from across the world.

We’d like to thank each delegate who attended, with a special shout-out to those who travelled halfway across the world to join us. So thank you. We’d like to say a massive thank you those artists that presented new work as part of XTRAX Shorts and to the brilliant Dizzy O’Dare who so kindly let Baba Yaga host the event. And of course, thank you to the team at SeaChange Arts and the Out There Festival team and Arts Council England for making this possible.
