Catapult Festival 2018

Wed April 18 at 9:00 am - Sun April 22 at 5:00 am

National youth circus and physical theatre festival.

Catapult Festival returns to Bathurst from 18 – 22 April 2018 Catapult is the meeting point for metropolitan, regional and remote youth circus practitioners and also the meeting point between youth circus and adult professional circus and physical theatre. Catapult plays a vital linking and networking role in a field where participants have previously not been able to meet, share skills and processes or develop national benchmarks and accreditation. This well loved national festival, launched in 2005, was the first festival in Australia to showcase the skills of young circus and physical theatre artists. Since 2005 Catapult has developed and grown, and each year more youth circus groups from around Australia make the journey to Bathurst to share in this amazing experience.
