Take Me Somewhere is a new celebratory festival of contemporary performance, which builds on the legacy of The Arches’ arts programme. The festival consists of events created through a programme of artistic development opportunities, combined with inspirational work from beyond Scotland. 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. The first festival was a huge success with both critics and audiences, with the entire programme selling out at venues across Glasgow. The 2018 festival will take place in May and will be led by Artistic Director LJ Findlay-Walsh and Executive Producer Gillian Garrity.
