Jul – Aug 2019. Submissions open from Jan 2019.


Our established arts festival for audiences and artists aged 16-25 has been taking place here since 2013. Celebrating the best emerging talent in east London, this is your chance to discover amazing new artists, meet other young creatives, and get an insight into producing your own events.

Every summer we offer a platform to young east London voices and present work across a range of genres: music, spoken word, theatre, dance, performance & live art, film & multimedia and everything in between, all created by those aged 16 – 25.

TAKEOVER provides learning & artistic development opportunities supported by established artistic partners and organisations. With free space, technical support and mentoring by our team, we invite early career arts producers and artists to get involved and connect with the wider TAKEOVER network.
