5 Sep 2018 - 9 Sep 2018

Unlimited, once again was shining a light on extraordinary work by disabled artists. Featuring the British Paraorchestra, writer and comedian Jackie Hagan, sitar master Baluji Shrivastav OBE and many more—dive into dance, performance, comedy, music and art that challenges perceptions and breaks down walls.

In 2018, the festival has an abundance of free events, plus relaxed performances and BSL-integrated events, so there's even more reason to get involved.

Born out of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad, Southbank Centre's Unlimited is a biennial festival with further Arts Council funding secured until 2020.

At the heart of the festival is the Unlimited commissions programme delivered by Shape Arts and Artsadmin. Supporting established, emerging and international disabled artists across all artforms, this programme aims to embed work by disabled artists within the cultural sector, reach new audiences and shift perceptions. The programme is funded by Arts Council England, Arts Council of Wales, British Council and Spirit of 2012.
