Unfortunately, we will no longer be holding Boomtown Chapter One: The Gathering this year and it will now take place from 10th - 14th August 2022.
Enter a world of creativity and freedom... Boomtown fuses boundary pushing theatre and arts with a global, genre spanning musical bill!

The Metropolis district main stage Pagoda Plaza, will see the welcome return of the stage hosts LGTBQ+ party collective Little Gay Brother, bringing with them their own unique brand of celebration and projecting values inline with that of our overall approach of inclusivity, not exclusivity.
