Signal Fires is a national festival of touring theatre. 

All through time and across the world Signal Fires have been lit  
to guide people home 
to warn of danger  
to offer safety  
to send a message  
to share the news. 

As part of this Autumn’s Signal Fires festival celebrating touring theatre, we will spark up our specially-commissioned digital Signal Fire created by Associate Artists Genetic Moo.  

Bring your cosiest jumper, a cushion or two, cocoa or a brandy and be transported to a timeless fireside experience of romance, fury, humour and deceit – who knows what our storytellers will offer for us.
