Imagine Luton
Following its debut last year, Imagine Luton will return to Luton town centre on 23-24 June to bring the streets to life once again with spectacular outdoor performances.

With all kinds of interactive theatre, dance, circus and music experiences on offer, the festival will have something for everyone and is free for all the family to enjoy.

Luton BID will once again be supporting the event financially, with promotional support and on the event days.
What to expect - an event which will pull in the crowds
This year’s festival will celebrate the 250 th anniversary of a great British invention – the Circus ! There will be a Big Top tent and a host of incredible marvels to take your breath away, including the return of Mimbre acrobats with their brand new show, ‘The Exploded Circus’.
Audiences can expect to stumble upon amazing acrobatic and aerial feats, magical illusions, mischievous characters and lifesize jenga blocks. Dancing grannies, high-energy hip-hop and Indian dance, a wacky bee colony, a strong lady, a marching rock band and many more world-class international acts and homegrown talent are also on the line-up!
