Housemates Festival is back: submissions open for 2024! 

We’re excited to announce that Housemates Festival is coming back from 24 September – 12 October 2024 for the third year in a row, and we are now accepting submissions! 

After a successful Housemates 2023 which has seen us bring back three productions for our 2024 programme, we are calling all storytellers to share your stories with us and together we will bring them to life.   

Brixton House wants to work with you to share your artistic vision and showcase your work to audiences across our building, in Theatre 1, Theatre 2, Studio 4 or our exhibition space. This year we are on the lookout for stories that will captivate intimate audiences and encouraging a wide range of performance styles, from theatre to dance, drag to musicals – we are interested in the variety of writing styles and storytelling you want to offer. We are also inviting submissions for family-friendly productions and artwork – they just need to be ready to go! You can find previous shows programmed as part of Housemates here. To see the application process in more detail you can read our call out document here.

Here is some feedback from the artists who were part of last year’s Housemates Festival:

It was my first time actually ‘working’ in a theatre – so I learnt so much. I had only been a writer up until that point. From marketing / ticket sales, to the role of Stage Managers and production teams. All of it!

Housemates has been my opportunity to share my play in my local area, I wouldn’t have been able to put this on stage again without the support of Brixton House.
