An 'amazing, jaw-dropping' production like no other will feature in the next Strike A Light Festival in Gloucester.

The popular contemporary arts festival will make a return to the city in September.

The festival came to a close earlier this month and organiser Sarah Blowers has heralded it a major success. Now she is putting her best foot forward with planning the next, even bigger festival later this year. It will run from September 26 to 29.

It will return with a performance of Ballad of the Burning Star by Theatre Ad Infinitum on September 28 and 29.

Sarah said: "It is an astonishing show; big, brave, loud, challenging and we can’t wait to bring it to Gloucester.

"We will drip feed you some more tasty morsels over the next few months. Rest assured there will be something for everyone so book those dates in your diary and do let us know if you would like to get involved in any way.

"A huge thank you to all who attended this year's festival and helped make it such a success. We are so proud of the quality of the work that we programmed; over 50% of the work that was part of the the Festival was made by local artists.

"It's hard to pinpoint highlights as it all felt very special."
