INK Festival Logo

After two years of being unable to hold The INK Festival, it is back big-time in 2022, and with a NEW format.

The Festival is expanding into a multitude of venues around the town of Halesworth, offering performance spaces spread over 8 exciting venues including INK headquarters at The Cut, The Rifle Hall, MR King & Sons, The Halesworth Museum, The White Swan and more.

It is also increasing to 4 days for the first time.

Each venue will have hour-long performances of 3 or more short new plays, showing several times during each day, so you can pick the performance venue and put together your own timetable of live theatre. This way, minimising the movement of audiences, eliminating queuing, and keeping the event as safe as possible. With a day ticket you can see as many performances as you like of live theatre, as well as poetry, talks and much more.

More than 50 brilliant, short new plays have been selected to be performed by more than 30 actors. There will also be performance poetry, stand-up comedy, kids’ Play-in-a-Day, an art show in The Cut Gallery, a community stage with many locally written plays, talks and of course great food – the plan is to envelop Halesworth with theatre and live performance.

There are plays written by Miranda Hart, Will Gompertz, Artistic Director at The Barbican, actor Elliot Cowan as well as so by many first-time writers, of all ages, who have all created something special – selected from over 2000 entries.

Luke Wright will headline the exciting line up of performance poets who will perform throughout the Festival.

John Morton, the writer of the English version of Call My Agent (which launches in 2022 in UK called 10% ) will be in conversation with journalist Tracey Macleod. Peter Fincham, previously Director of TV at ITV, Controller of BBC One and Executive Producer of the hugely popular Clarkson’s Farm, will be in conversation with actor and INK Patron, Helen Atkinson Wood.

Each evening there will be a special comedy show with one of these fabulous entertainers – Arthur Smith, Shaparak Khorsandi, Mark Steel, and Arabella Weir. Save the date!

Tickets go on sale 18th February 2022 –
