Take Me Somewhere is Glasgow’s new festival of contemporary performance, building on the legacy of The Arches following its closure in 2015. The festival combines the best home-grown talent with some of the world’s most cutting-edge contemporary performers as part of an exciting programme of events. Take Me Somewhere aims to provide a crucial support structure to Scotland’s most innovative and exciting community of artists and makers. The festival was founded in 2017 by Jackie Wylie, now Artistic Director of the National Theatre of Scotland, with the inaugural festival proving to be a huge success with both critics and audiences, selling out at venues across Glasgow. The 2018 festival will take place in May and will be led by new Artistic Director LJ Findlay-Walsh and Executive Producer Gillian Garrity.

As part of the first festival in 2017 we created GRIP - Glasgow's Review of International Performance - you can view this publication here.
