Preparations for Ripon Theatre Festival are gearing up

Preparations for Ripon Theatre Festival are gearing up this month.

With key support from Ripon BID, the Festival (23-26 June) aims to brighten the open spaces and venues of Ripon with professional and community performances and to celebrate the unique city with four days of fun.

The Festival Guide (pictured) is being distributed widely across the region, supported by online and social media. The Festival will stage events and activities for all ages, both indoors and outside, much of it free to access. The programme include puppetry, dance, drama, street theatre, storytelling, children’s activities and family shows.

Festival Saturday will see street acts and walkabout performers throughout the city and a puppet-led Ripon Trail Game which encourages families to explore the city streets, finding clues in shops, cafés and places of interest. Members are encouraged to display Festival Guides and to share social media posts about this exciting event.
