PAPAYA Fest - Bristol


Launched in defiance of Brexit and the rising tide of toxic nationalism, PAPAYA Fest is a unique fusion of Latin American and British culture in the heart of Bristol. 

Curated by Popelei, the festival programme includes theatre, live music, discussion events and JUICY BITS: our ground-breaking artist development programme nurturing collaborations between Bristolian and Latin-American theatre makers.


PAPAYA Fest took place at The Wardrobe Theatre and Old Market Assembly from 7 - 15 October 2022 and before that in October 2019.
