About the festival


Mayfest is Bristol's unique international festival of contemporary theatre, dedicated to presenting a broad range of unusual, playful and ambitious work from leading theatre makers from Bristol, the UK and beyond.


"A mix of work so tasty it makes you want to up sticks and move to Bristol permanently." The Guardian


Mayfest is produced by MAYK, in partnership with arts organisations across Bristol.


From pubs and clubs to community centres and libraries, from theatres and galleries to streets and woods; the city is a playground.


Mayfest has built collaborative relationships with nearly every arts organisation in the city, from Bristol Old Vic to Tobacco Factory Theatres, from Arnolfini to the Cube, from Trinity to Circomedia.


Each festival the organisers invite the most extraordinary theatre artists they can find into the city for an explosion of culture.


The programme emerges from conversations with artists and producers, from months travelling the world to find the best new theatre and performance, from collaborations with organisations locally and nationally.


Mayfest is MAYK's gift to the people of Bristol - a feast of performance for a diverse, multi-cultural city.


Mayfest's Artistic Directors are Matthew Austin and Kate Yedigaroff.
