INCOMING Festival champions the very best emerging theatre companies from across the UK.
We have run four hugely successful festivals at New Diorama Theatre in London, each year showcasing around 20 companies to enthusiastic sold-out audiences. With every ticket being only £5, INCOMING Festival have played to over 90% capacity in previous years.
This Incoming we’re really shaking things up – and we need your help to make it possible.
For the first time ever, we’re hosting the festival across two cities: in London at NDT and, at the very same time, in Manchester at HOME. We’ll help artists travel further than ever before, reaching audiences who otherwise would never be able to visit the festival.
Incoming Festival dates:
25 June - 4 July 2018, London
29 June - 8 July 2018, Manchester
We’re committed to keeping all the tickets at just £5 while we’re paying our artists twice as much (as we’re doubling their performances)!
This will be the most ambitious Incoming Festival to date. If you, like us:
1. Want to support the most talented artists...
2. Want to help brilliant work reach new audiences, who can’t afford expensive theatre tickets...
3. Believe that artists should be properly paid to present their work at festivals...
4. Want to see Incoming expand out from London...
… then we need your support. Please donate to help us hit the target we need to raise to make all of this possible.
New Diorama and HOME theatres are contributing and we’ve recently received a grant from Arts Council England. Now all we need is this final bit of help from generous, amazing people like you.

Risks and challenges
Previous INCOMING Festivals have been a huge success. The biggest challenge facing us this year is running the festival over two cities. But thanks to the generous support from New Diorama and HOME we’re confident we have everything in place to best tackle our most ambitious INCOMING to date.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
