Join us and outdoor arts specialists from across the world at our showcase event, the XTRAX / SIRF Showcase in Stockton-on-Tees.

Taking place from 1st August – 4th August, the Stockton International Riverside Festival (SIRF) is an annual free outdoor arts and street theatre festival in Stockton-on-Tees. In 2017 the festival celebrated its 30th year, helping to cement its position as one of the world’s oldest and best international outdoor art festivals. SIRF attracts international artists performing to thousands of spectators each year. It showcases outstanding international street theatre, dance, circus and music acts with a packed programme of shows for all the family.

We invite you to spend three days in the context of this ambitious festival and see a rich programme of outdoor shows, learn about new models of working and meet with others working in the industry in a professional programme that will include talks, networking and pitching sessions.


The XTRAX / SIRF 2019 Showcase is supported by Arts Council England through National Lottery Project Grants

XTRAX is our really good partner. It’s the best stepping stone to meet the people in the UK street
arts sector.

The organization of XTRAX Showcase really did their utmost best to prepare a warm welcome to the international delegates. There were plenty of opportunities to network, both formally and informally. XTRAX made it really easy to meet new people in the field of street arts, so this was a great start.
