In the year of Oxford Brookes’ 150th anniversary celebrations, this year’s OutBurst will be a memorable event bringing great ideas, activities and family-friendly entertainment right to the doorstep of the Oxford public.

Angus Phillips, Head of the School of Arts at Oxford Brookes, said: “This is the fourth year the festival has been held at Pegasus Theatre, a fantastic venue to showcase such a variety of entertainment OutBurst has to offer.

“From 3D models and art work to informative lectures, film screenings and interactive exhibitions, there is something for all ages and interests and I hope the local community will be able to come and enjoy the festival with us.”

For over 50 years, Pegasus has pioneered an extraordinary programme of participatory work with young people, the local community and professional artists at the heart of a thriving professional venue showcasing world-class drama, dance and music. Pegasus is a meeting place between generations, cultures, artists and participants, a place of creative exchange and community.

Artistic Director/CEO Jonathan Lloyd said: “We are proud of our long-standing and creative partnership with Oxford Brookes University. 

“Outburst is a brilliant example of what Pegasus is all about - fizzing with ideas, playful, inventive and challenging the idea of what a theatre is and does.’”
