Raze Collective Weekend

Part of Summer at Southbank Centre

Celebrate the best in queer (LGBTQI+) culture with theatre, dance and music at the Raze Collective Summertime Stage takeover.

The Raze Collective is a charity that supports, develops and nurtures queer performance in the UK. Raze was established in response to the closure of many long-standing queer venues.

By bringing together people working in different aspects of the queer performance community, including performers, producers, promoters, directors, venue owners, academics and audience members, the charity hopes to protect and promote queer performance for everyone.
