About the festival

Following a year without live in-person audiences, Jermyn Street Theatre, winner of the 2021 Stage Award for Fringe Theatre of the Year, will light up again this May as it launches a three month celebration of drama, music, poetry and comedy.

FOOTPRINTS FESTIVAL, which kicks off on May 17, will feature over 40 small-scale productions playing to socially-distanced audiences of 25 people in the auditorium and streamed simultaneously for audiences to watch at home.

The festival will run to August 1 with matinee, evening and late night shows staged throughout the weeks.

Footprints Festival champions theatre and the people who make it, and will engage around 300 freelancers.

There are six strands: Drama, Solo Cabaret, Classics, Showcases and Poetry, all of which include shows to make us laugh, think and perhaps shed a tear or two.

As always at Jermyn Street Theatre, household names will share the bill with exciting newcomers offering an exciting mix of the familiar and the new.

Note: we list festival shows below which are scheduled to play for more than 3 days.

However, this festival has a number of productions which will play for just a day or two.
