Perform your theatre show at The Hidden Valley

Perform your theatre show at The Hidden Valley


Nozstock is more than just a music festival, with a treasure trove of theatrical happenings and deliciously eccentric walkabout, there is something wonderful lurking round every corner. Nozstock’s theatre, The Bantam of The Opera welcomes an eclectic mix of theatre shows, workshops, puppet acts, circus antics and a late night cabaret.

This year we have reserved a programming slot in the theatre for local, home-grown talent. If you are a theatre-maker that wants to see your work performed at “The best festival of its size in the UK” then now is your chance. You will also receive free tickets to the festival to enjoy the many other delights on offer!

A breakdown of what we are looking for is below, if you would like to apply to perform then please return application form to Theatre Manager, [email protected]  by 5pm on Friday 16th May. We will announce the successful applicants end of May.
