It’s a wrap

UPSURGE 2019 has come to a close, ending six absolutely amazing days and nights of top class performances, which were enjoyed by so many.
We are incredibly grateful for all of the wonderful feedback that we have received. Thank you to everyone who came along and made the most of our special biennial Festival.

We are especially grateful to all the artists who came to share their stories, songs, dance and craft with us. There have been so many memorable moments which we are sure will be remembered for a while yet!

Thank you also must go to all of our wonderful sponsors, funders, patrons and supporters – the Festival simply would not be possible without your generous support, energy and enthusiasm. We are truly greatful to all of those who have seen the value of the arts and helped make the Festival possible.

We look forward to seeing you in 2021!
