Worcestershire will this autumn play host to a brand new queer arts festival.


Out In The Shires (OITS) is a five-day event which is being co-presented by Provisional Act Theatre Company and Worcestershire Pride. 

Taking place at various venues from 18 to 22 September, its aim is to promote emerging and established queer artists whose work focuses on LGBTQ+ themes.


The festival will include a wide variety of art exhibitions, theatre shows, poetry performances, queer films and drag acts. 

“OITS was created from a need to see more arts events for and by LGBT+ people,” says Worcestershire Pride’s Artistic Director, Dr Daniel Somerville. “We hope that this first edition of the event will help put Worcestershire on the map as a place where arts lovers can enjoy queer arts in a rural setting.”
