Troopfest is Cambridge Junction’s 3-day mini-festival of work made by members of our artist development scheme Troop. Each evening consists of three strands:

  • This is not a Drill - A short ensemble work performed by Troop members created with RashDash
  • Mini Manoeuvres - An interval cabaret of short open-mic slots  
  • Trooping North - A full-length Edinburgh Fringe preview

The idea behind Troopfest is to give Troop members who are taking shows to Edinburgh the chance to preview work at Cambridge Junction, and to give our audiences ‘a taste of the Edinburgh Fringe’ on their doorstep. It comes a week after the Cambridge Comedy Festival which presents Edinburgh comedy previews on Jesus Green. This year we plan to create a festive atmosphere at the Junction where audiences can hang out in our festival bar and listen to cabaret, comedy, music etc. in the interval.

Troopfest returns in 2018
