SIRF17 returns to Stockton-on-Tees between Thursday 3 and Sunday 6 August bringing you more stunning street theatre, breath-taking circus performances, dynamic dance and music.

What’s more, SIRF17 will celebrate 30 years of SIRF and there’s a packed programme of shows with something for everyone to enjoy – from large scale performances to intimate shows, fun and quirky family shows to surprising and immersive evening shows.

“Fizz Pop Bang!” our SIRF Community Carnival will celebrate 30 years in style bringing colour, carnival rhythms and dance to the town centre, and ending with a special birthday party on Stockton’s Riverside.

There’s so much to see at SIRF with new experiences, surprises and delights.  Be sure to catch our festival finale show by Cirque Bijou, this Fire-Wire Spectacle will astound audiences and is the only place in the UK you can see this show and for one night only!
