Renowned for its diverse programming, Cambridge Junction will play host to a pioneering new LGBTQ+ arts festival aimed at children and families.

PALAVER Festival, a collaboration with Fatt Projects, takes place on Thursday, October 28, and promises a ‘joyful, messy and delightfully unruly programme of high-quality entertainment, providing essential representation, space and dialogue’.

A celebration of the radical potential of LGBTQ+ inclusive performance work specifically created for children aged 3 to 8 and family audiences, the festival will feature dazzling discos, dancing, creative workshops, dress-up sessions, and storytelling. There’ll also be a showcase of five newly commissioned performance extracts from an array of LGBTQ+ artists.

The PALAVER programme runs throughout September and October at Cambridge Junction, and culminates with the festival, giving participants a chance to learn, laugh and celebrate families of all kinds.
