Surge Festival

About Surge Festival

Scotland’s leading developer of street arts, Surge, presents a line-up of extraordinary and memorable street theatre acts, let loose on the public throughout the Merchant City Festival weekend.

Surge runs projects to develop street arts, physical theatre and circus in Scotland. We work with artists, performance companies and educators at all levels of experience.

This year’s annual Surge Festival brings new Scottish work and cutting edge international performances to the streets of Glasgow, including a band on bicycles, apocalyptic horsemen and a demonic puppet baby!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Surge Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
