“The Midnight Matinees are raw, rude and unpredictable. I had a ball, and you will too.”
- Che Walker
The Midnight Matinees happen once a month at Midnight. They are a theatrical event that take over an entire building. These monthly midnight happening showcase, develop and test new work from some of the most innovative practitioners in London and the UK. In 2009 the Midnight Matinees were invited to perform at Latitude and in 2010 they have been invited to Edinburgh and a new festival in Croatia. Recommended in Time Out's top things to do in 2009, the Midnight Matinees are a unique experience and a great night out.
We welcome submissions from artists working in performance, dance, cabaret and new media. As these events are incredibly unique we recommend that you come along to one and see if the format would be right for your work. Then please get in contact email@example.com
