Imagine Luton is a celebratory two-day outdoor arts festival taking place throughout Luton Town Centre, bringing the streets to life with amazing interactive circus, theatre, dance and music performances, free for all the family.

The festival had a successful first year in 2017, showcasing world-class acts alongside the best of home-grown talent, bringing communities together and creating countless magical moments!

Audiences were treated to all kinds of unexpected colourful encounters with mischievous roaming theatrical characters, acrobats flying through the air, impromptu street raves, high-energy dance acts, stunning stilt-walkers, fantastical cycle machines and much more.

We hope you can join us next year on 23-24 June 2018 to do it all over again!

In the meantime, have a look at some festival highlights below.
