Young Audiences

TakeOff Festival, produced by Theatre Hullabaloo, is England’s leading festival of theatre for young audiences and takes place from 20th - 26th October 2014.

Each year The Empty Space co-curate The Departure Lounge, both through an open callout to artists and companies who might have an idea that they would like to scratch and would benefit from advice and guidance from peers, and through a comissioning process. In previous years, scratch shows at TakeOff have resulted in new coproductions, bookings, funding and new artistic collaborations.
