Bite Size Festival 2022

This day-long festival on Saturday 30 April at Warwick Arts Centre offered up a jam-packed taster menu of new theatre from the Midlands, including short excerpts of new work, full-length shows and exclusive previews of pieces still in development. All presented by home-grown artists working across the region – from critically acclaimed, award-winning companies to fresh faced, emerging theatre-makers.

Including exclusive extracts of work commissioned through our sister festival First Bite, including Georgia Kelly’s Blood and Keiren Hamilton-Amos’s Pulled.

Bite Size Festival was presented in partnership with Shoot Festival’s Performance: In Bloom event, a showcase of Coventry and Warwickshire’s emerging talent taking place on 28 and 29 April 2022 at the Belgrade Theatre.

Commissioned by Midlands Arts Centre, Attenborough Arts Centre and In Good Company. Supported by Camden People’s Theatre.
