SICK! Festival returns seeking answers to the most challenging questions that affect how we live and experience our lives.

SICK! Festival places art at the heart of positive health and health at the heart of outstanding art.

Through creation, presentation and public conversation, they empower diverse communities to confront the physical, mental and social challenges that we face in our individual and collective lives.
Kicking off this year’s festival, a four-day programme of performance and conversation explores the question ‘What is the value of a human life?’ through the lives, voices and art of people living with disability.

Delivered in partnership with The Lowry, the festival features performances from Candoco, Paraorchestra, Lisa Hammond & Rachel Spence, Laurence Clarke and Ursula Martinez.
