With 36 unique events all taking place within Soho Theatre from the 24th to the 28th of September, the festival is set to take the capital by storm! This year’s line-up is the best to date, with 36 eclectic events, none of which overlap for the first four out of five days – check out the full listings on the right of the page to book your tickets.
