BE FESTIVAL (shortened from Birmingham European Festival) takes place annually in June at The Birmingham Repertory Theatre.

Each year a daring and innovative programme of boundary pushing theatre, dance, comedy, circus, music, visual and performing arts takes place turning the theatre’s rarely seen backstages into a den of creativity, discovery and exchange where diverse cultures are celebrated.

Every night includes the famous interval dinner which takes place on the main stage and after the stage performances there is the BE Late Stage which features a selection of International and UK bands and DJs taking the festival into the wee hours.
