Theatre companies and performing arts groups in the county are being invited to apply for the festival, with funding and mentoring available to those selected.

Onstage: Online will take place from Thursday 11 to Sunday 14 June and will see live sessions streamed each day on the Gala Theatre’s YouTube channel, along with scheduled pre-recorded content. The videos will also be shared on social media and will remain available for people to enjoy when the festival is over on both the Gala Theatre and Durham University’s YouTube channels.
