LAMDA MishMash

An inspiring new festival supporting the self-created work of LAMDA graduates and alumni.

We’re thrilled to announce that April 2020 will see the first ever LAMDA MishMash Festival; a three-day event celebrating new writing and work created by LAMDA alumni and their contemporaries.

MishMash is a platform to celebrate the variety of creative paths LAMDA trained artists take upon graduation; whether they’ve created their own work, joined an agency, freelancing across the country or established a theatre company.

Over three days, the Linbury Studio and the Carne Studio Theatre will host an array of work from our graduates and collaborators at various stages of their careers, from rehearsed readings and scratch performances to realised shows and films. We’ll also be hosting a series of workshops and talks, featuring prominent figures within the industry.

We believe in collaboration and the power of the ensemble, and MishMash celebrates that belief. Whilst each company involved with the festival must include at least one LAMDA graduate, non-LAMDA creatives are more than welcome.
