StagEHd is a two day festival of theatre, celebrating the performing arts in Edinburgh.
Born out of a conversation about the commercialisation of Edinburgh’s public spaces, StagEHd is an open access, free-to-attend festival of theatre, featuring the best of Edinburgh’s independent, grassroots and community theatre companies.
The festival began partly as a response to the closure of the city’s arts spaces during the 2020 pandemic, by EGTG (Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group) in collaboration with other community theatre companies in the city, as an opportunity to showcase homegrown talent to a local audience.
The StagEHd festival programme is open to performance proposals from any independent, grassroot or community theatre company based within the EH postcode area. New, old and original work from any realm of the performing arts are all encouraged.
Programming decisions will be made by the festival board in consultation with a community steering committee which is made up of representatives from a number of Edinburgh’s community theatre companies. Proposals will be measured against creative interpretation, having simple technical needs, and content appropriate for daytime performance.
