Ikon is excited to be taking part in Midsummer Festival, a free one-day festival celebrating arts and culture in the West Midlands on Saturday 20 June.
Featuring a collection of many West Midlands theatre, dance, music, artists and venues Midsummer Festival will mark the Summer Solstice with a wide range of live, archived and pre-recorded cultural activity available online including performances which have never been seen before from companies including the Royal Shakespeare Company, ACE Dance and Music and Birmingham Contemporary Music Group. See the full schedule.
Midsummer Festival is the first event organised by the West Midlands Culture Response Unit (WMCRU), which has been created to co-ordinate, develop and deliver an action-orientated, response by over 100 arts organisations in the West Midlands to the Covid-19 crisis in the short, medium and long term. Led by Culture Central, WMCRU’s purpose is to ensure the visibility, viability and recovery of the Cultural Sector in the West Midlands.
