Brixton City is an ambitious programme of creative residencies, community celebrations, public interventions and commissions that will take place between now and opening in 2018, launching this summer with Brixton City Festival.

Over the four days of the festival, audiences will enjoy unique theatrical experiences in everyday locations transformed into live performances to stumble across. A playground of theatre, circus, music, art and indescribable fun – Brixton City Festival has something for everyone.
