First Bite is back! 

Join us for a chance to see an eclectic collection of extracts and new ideas from some of the most exciting theatre makers working across the region. 

Midlands Arts Centre is hosting the first of three First Bite events taking place in the Midlands this spring, offering you an exclusive chance to see work in progress material from both new and established regional theatre companies, and offer your feedback to help develop their shows. Three of the pieces seen during the First Bite events will be commissioned by the festival partners and be shown at the Bite Size Festival at Warwick Arts Centre in January 2020.

Be there at the start and help us mould the future of theatre in the Midlands!

More information about the festival, along with confirmation of the line-up can be found on the China Plate Theatre website.

Attend all three events! First Bite is also taking place at Derby Theatre on 22 March and the Check In Festival at Attenborough Arts Centre on 5 April.
