GLOW at Eastbury

CALL OUT FOR COMMISSIONS

Deadline: Monday, 23rd September at 10am

We are looking for artists, art collectives and organisations within Barking and Dagenham and beyond to respond to our theme of ILLUSION for GLOW 2019, exploring perception, magic, perspective and more! We are looking to commission two pieces, new or existing work adapted to the site of Eastbury Manor House, that provide interactive opportunities on the evening and/ or before the event, for our winter lantern and lights festival, taking place at Eastbury Manor House on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th November 2019.

GLOW is being produced by Cultural Connectors with the Creative Barking and Dagenham (CBD) team in partnership with the Eastbury Manor House and London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. GLOW 2019 is our third winter lights festival at Eastbury Manor House and over the past two GLOW festivals we have welcomed over 3,500 visitors! Our aim for the festival is to bring light to the darkest months and bring opportunities for our local communities to come together.

CBD supports local people to commission, curate and create brilliant art in their areas. We are working with a steering group of committed local people from our Cultural Connectors network to develop all aspects of the festival. CBD is a consortium of local organisations and funded by Arts Council England and London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. Find out more here.

Three Inch Fools

The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors equipped with all manner of musical instruments, performing our highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays. The Three Inch Fools call Eastbury their East London home and spend March to May rehearsing and meeting visitors. 

They perform Shakespeare in almost any kind of setting, both indoors and outdoors, and in all sorts of places. To date, they have performed Shakespeare at some of the UK's most stunning castles, stately homes and historic barns, National Trust and English Heritage properties, village greens, churches, cathedrals, market places, an old fire station, a medieval crypt, a garlic farm, a royal residence and even a seaside pier - all the world's a stage!

This year they are touring the UK with our exciting new productions of Much Ado About Nothing and Macbeth. Check our What's On page for information on upcoming performances.
