Calling all performers and performance-makers in Thurrock

This festival of performance and expert industry advice will be a fantastic opportunity for performers and performance-makers across Thurrock. They can connect with the people in their own communities who can guide, inspire and provide future opportunities for development and work.   

Any theatre-maker, playwright, performer, poet, dance-maker or singer/songwriter who lives in or is connected to Thurrock is invited to send in a submission for inclusion in Outer Limits Thurrock. Scratch* performances can be up to 15 minutes in length and expenses up to £100 will be paid. Ready to go performances can be between 30-60 minutes in length and depending on the scale of the piece, will receive a performance fee up to £500. The theatre’s technical staff will be available to support performances.  Now is the time to create that piece of work that has always been lurking at the back of your mind. There’ll be lots more news nearer the time for those who’d like to come along and network, but don’t wish to bring work.

The deadline for submissions has been extended to Wednesday 29th July at 5pm. All submissions will be considered by the Outer Limits Thurrock steering group made up of industry professionals. To find out more and request a form, email

Outer Limits is part of the two-year Essex on Stage programme, which champions positive ideas about Essex, celebrates performance made by working-class people and raises aspirations artists from Essex and Outer East London. Essex on Stage is supported by The Clothworkers’ Foundation.
