Roots by 1927


Looping the Loop are back and collaborating with UK Arts International this September with their new festival ‘Making Waves’.



From improvised adventures, a one woman show on #instagramlife to classic tales retold with puppetry and storytelling, this new festival has a programme of events and shows to excite, inspire and entertain audiences.

The line-up includes critically acclaimed theatre, interactive family experiences and all of them are live, local and right on your doorstep.

Making Waves is a weekend of live performance taking place in three of Margate’s most prestigious venues - the historic Theatre Royal, the UK’s second oldest working theatre, the diminutive Tom Thumb and Olby’s Soul Café.

Coinciding with the start of Margate Now and the opening of the Turner Prize exhibition, Making Waves runs from Friday 27th September through to Sunday 29th September - a great opportunity to see some of the best work that is being created in East Kent.
