ROOTS Festival 2023, is Vivid Roots Collective’s first ever theatre festival for Highland and emerging theatre-makers. Join them in Inverness on Fri 29 – Sat 30 September 2023 in celebrating the talented artists in the region, learning new skills, and meeting like-minded creatives with talks, workshops, performances and networking.
The festival is fully in-person at the Spectrum Centre in Inverness. The venue has good transport links, situated at the bus station and a two minute walk from the train station in the city centre. They are taking over all three of Spectrum’s main rooms with a quiet room upstairs for attendees who need to take a break.
This year has been programmed in response to their recent report, FUTURES, which evidences the needs of emerging theatre-makers in the Highlands.
