Egerszeg Festival is the biggest multicultural event of Zala county and also a prominent festival in the western Transdanubian Region. It has been a one-month series of events since 2015 which honours the birthday of Zalaegerszeg. Besides the values and traditions of the city, the latest music trends, classical music, fine arts, children’s programs, street art and gastronomy are also featured in the programs. In addition to 3 open-air stages the whole city centre becomes a communal space.
BE FESTIVAL exists to bring the best emerging European theatre companies and visual artists to Birmingham and beyond, offering opportunities to showcase their work; develop and exchange their ideas and practice; create extraordinary new work together; and engage with audiences in unique and innovative ways, with the aim of growing audiences for international theatre both locally and nationally. All of BE FESTIVAL’s year round activity has at its heart the desire to “cross borders” (cultural, social, linguistic, art form) and to nurture new talent.
Varna Summer International Music Festival, founded in 1926, is one of the oldest festivals in Europe. It has won international recognition and is a prestigious forum for Bulgarian and world classical music and performing art. The programme includes symphony concerts, opera, ballet, chamber music, early and contemporary music, masterclasses and conferences. The annual festival supports young talent and promotes new works and collaborations between local and international performers and artists.
