WEST MIDLANDS ARTS COMPANIES COME TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE THE REGION’S ARTS AND CULTURE WITH FREE MIDSUMMER FESTIVAL
Featuring a collection of many West Midlands’ theatre, dance, music, artists and venues, the Midsummer Festival on Saturday 20th June will mark the Summer Solstice with a wide range of live, archived and pre-recorded cultural activity available online, including performances which have never been seen before from companies including the Royal Shakespeare Company, ACE Dance and Music and Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.
Midsummer Festival is the first event organised by the WMCRU, which has been created to co-ordinate, develop and deliver an action-orientated response by over 100 arts organisations in the West Midlands to the Covid-19 crisis in the short, medium and long term.
Inspired by annual Midsummer celebrations across the region, the day will feature work influenced by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and will respond more generally to nature with open air events in a wide variety of settings across the region, as well as a series of streamed performances.
