Grad Tidings @ Southwark Playhouse

  • A festive and formal evening celebrating graduate achievements from throughout the past year. Much like the cabarets we have produced at various venues across London throughout this year, Grad Tidings was a festive event filled with Christmas songs and hosted by Alice Fearn.

  • The event included a line-up of 2020 and 2021 graduates performing songs to get everyone into the festive spirit throughout these uncertain times!

The Grad Fest Showcase

  • Due to the current pandemic, we were aware that many theatre graduates had either lost out on the opportunity to perform at their industry showcase, or were unable to meet with agents at the start of the year.

  • We collaborated with LAMBCO productions to produce the first agent showcase for theatre graduates seeking representation since lockdown! We were based in a central London venue, whilst obeying all the social distancing requirements.


The Grad Fest Reunion!

  • The Grad Fest hosted their first public event, as part of 'The New Normal' festival, at the Royal Victoria Patriotic Building in Wandsworth. It was a live-lounge style cabaret and where 2020 grads could meet and share their experiences as graduates so far.
