Waterside in Sale, Greater Manchester, has outlined the programme for its annual experiential summer arts festival: Refract:21.

Running from July 22, this 10-day event—now in its fourth year—transforms the spaces inside and outside Trafford’s arts venue to offer innovative ways in which to experience comedy, music, dance, performance and theatre.

From the aerial duet and physical theatre show Why? to the playful Grow, and the dance show And Then It Just…Stopped.

Indoor highlights include drag superstar Jonny Woo appearing with composer Richard Thomas.
