You can find the stages on Gentleman’s Walk, St Gregory’s Green, Westlegate, Tombland, Riverside and the Millennium Plain – please check the programme to see where the performances are taking place each week.

Running from 7 weeks in Summer 2021, Head Out, Not Home includes all the best local talent, performers from across the country, and brilliant street entertainers.
