Birmingham’s LGBTQ Arts Festival Returns For Its Eighth Edition in 2016


Birmingham LGBT is pleased to announce that it has been awarded funding by Arts Council England and Birmingham City Council to support the programming and delivery of its annual SHOUT Festival.

Established in 2009, SHOUT Festival presents, showcases and exhibits the best in queer art forms and culture throughout the city.

Back for its 8th edition, SHOUT 2016 launches on 10th November for a 10 day festival encompassing the best in live performance, theatre, comedy, music and film at venues throughout Birmingham.

Ian Hyde, SHOUT’s producer said: “We’re delighted that we can bring back SHOUT for its eighth edition.  Since it started, the festival’s reputation has been growing and is now a firmly-established part of the regional festival calendar.  This year we can promise a welcome return for festival favourites alongside exciting new work not previously seen in the city.”

The festival will also be launching a new website, and announcing the first artists shortly, so watch this space.

Neil Anderson, Festival Chair added: “Since its inception, SHOUT has gone from strength to strength.  The festival remains central to our objective of ensuring that Birmingham and the West Midlands is a place known for innovative queer work”
