Strike A Light is a Gloucester based organisation striving to make Gloucester a city with a vibrant culture for all.
We are made up of three strands:
Programming and producing 2 x Contemporary Performance Festivals (Strike A Light Festival) a year, plus bespoke year round programming ensuring a sustained cultural offer
Delivering a year round Artist Support Programme that provides nationally significant partners for emerging artists
Developing a year round Arts Participation Programme, Gloucester Rising, for CYP from Gloucester City delivered by experienced, inspiring practitioners.
About our ticket prices:
Strike A Light is an accessible festival so all of our tickets are very heavily subsidised.
Many of our tickets have a concession option. You don’t need to be a student to be eligible for this concession price. If you would like to support the festival to continue it’s integral work in Gloucester, please purchase a £10 ticket, however we do not want finance to be a barrier to anyone.
