Nuff Said By the Sea

Nuff Said By the Sea


The Nuffield Theatre is delighted to announce the third Nuff Said festival: Nuff Said by the Sea.

This is a special opportunity to join the Nuffield in a day and night celebration of innovative artists and performances. The festival will centre around the conclusion to Rules & Regs (, a national project which challenges artists to work in response to a set of rules devised by the host venue. We'll be presenting five short pieces devised exclusively for this weekend by North West artists Levantes Dance, Neil Callaghan, Simon Bowes, Simone Kenyon and Christine Entwisle. The focus is very much on the artistic process, and once performed, it is unlikely these works will be seen again.

The artists have bravely agreed to keep a blog of their experiences and thoughts during this process. You can see this by following the link at the bottom of this page.

Nuff Said III will also be looking back to land and out to sea – reflecting on the experiments in programming, projects and commissioning that have defined the Nuffield Theatre over the last twelve months, and seeking your ideas and feedback as we look to the future. This will be an informal affair, taking a theme related to the rules our artists have been following. Finally, there will be a party til late, celebrating another successful Nuffield season. We really hope you can join us.

Tickets include buffet, refreshments, ice-cream and the occasional squawk of a gull in the distance.
Knotted hankies and suncream optional.

Please see the projects section for more information on rules and regs, and to see the rules that the artists have been working to!
