Leeds Playhouse is celebrating new work by new artists in a kaleidoscopic showcase of performances, workshops, conversations and social events as part of its week-long Furnace Festival.

This eclectic, engaging and experimental festival is a key part of the ongoing Furnace programme, which is the Playhouse’s development engine, generating and creating new performance work while supporting and nourishing the local creative community.

All the events are either free or pay-what-you-can.

Amy Leach, Associate Director at Leeds Playhouse, said: “After a two-year hiatus, we are thrilled to once again be able to invite audiences to Furnace Festival – our celebration of the new work, artists and partnerships we develop through our wider Furnace programme. Our aim, as always, is to entertain, challenge and inspire with a fascinating programme of performances, workshops, conversations and social events.

“After the year we’ve all had, it feels particularly important for us to look to the future, to reignite people’s passion for new work and to introduce them to fresh ideas from a creative chorus of new voices.”
