People singing on stage at the Festival

Perform at the Great Exhibition Road Festival

Are you a creative in the local community? If so, we may have just the opportunity for you!

The Great Exhibition Road Festival are launching a new Community Stage for the festival in 2021. We’re looking to showcase and celebrate the wonderfully diverse talent in our local communities – which is where you come in...

You might be a singer/songwriter, or perhaps you are part of a community dance group. Maybe you spent lockdown 2020 honing your hidden talent and are ready to share it with an audience. If you're based in one of our local boroughs, either Kensington and Chelsea, Westminster or Hammersmith and Fulham, we want to hear from you. 

To find out if this opportunity is for you please read our applicant information, which should answer any questions you might have. We have put this together to help give an insight into what the Great Exhibition Road Festival is and what the Community Stage will be. It is very important that you read this before applying.

Once you’ve given this some thought, you can submit your application for the festival team and the community panel for review.

The deadline for applications is Sunday 31 January 2021.

If you have any questions that aren’t answered in the applicant information document, please get in touch by email: festival@imperial.ac.uk

We look forward to receiving your applications. Best of luck!
