Stockton International Riverside Festival (SIRF)

Stockton International Riverside Festival (SIRF)

The countdown to the 34th Stockton International Riverside Festival (SIRF) is on! 

Stockton International Riverside Festival (SIRF) returns to Stockton High Street this summer from Thursday 29 July – Sunday 1 August 2021 for four days of top UK circus, dance, music and outdoor arts.

The Festival will be jam-packed with world class UK shows – from the magical and quirky performances, to stunning visual experiences, daring dance and spectacular circus – there’s a whole host of free, fun and family friendly entertainment for everyone.

On Thursday 29 July prepare to be amazed from the start when SIRF opens in its trademark awe-inspiring fashion. Launch show ‘The Bridge’ by Imagineer will feature gravity-defying circus acrobatics, dance, comedy, theatre as well as live music inspired by local people.

Then on Sunday 1 August it will be party time with the return of the much loved SIRF Community Carnival.

This year’s Carnival will see hundreds of young people, adults, community members, musicians and street performers dance and sing their way along Stockton High Street in a sea of colour and music on Sunday 1 August. The vibrant procession will make its way through the town centre to Stockton Riverside where there will be an all day Carnival celebration!

Expect to be dazzled throughout the day by toe tapping live music, family entertainment, show stopping street theatre shows and plenty of creative workshops to take part in.

There will also be a chance to get involved in virtual workshops at home, keep checking the SIRF website for more details.
