Join in the fun at an eclectic summer festival


Stockton International Riverside Festival is four days of street theatre, circus, dance, music and more to inspire, entertain and make you laugh.

Since the first Stockton International Riverside Festival (SIRF) in August 1988, the party has grown in popularity to become one of Europe’s finest outdoor arts and street theatre festivals. 

For four days each year, the streets and public places of Stockton, northeast England, are transformed into an arena for outstanding shows, from large-scale spectacular events to intimate experiences like wall-to-wall street theatre, circus, dance, music and pyrotechnics. Everything is delivered by world-class artists and performers who respond to their environment and absorb and involve their audiences. Unpredictable, vibrant, spectacular, challenging, moving, beautiful, exotic and transformative – SIRF is unmissable!

Stockton International Riverside Festival 2018 takes place between 2-5 August with a full programme of events to come later.
