There are lots of opportunities and chances to put all the developing, collaborating and dreaming you've indulged in through In Good Company into practice on stages big and small. 

Our annual Departure Lounge Festival is a performance platform of national importance, attended by artists, industry and audiences. We invite local and national artists to showcase their work and celebrate new and innovative performance.

Our annual Check-in Festival is designed for local artists to experiment and play.

Our seasonal scratch nights allow local and national artists to test new ideas in a supportive and encouraging environment
