Our buildings are currently closed to the public whilst we move space – but we are still hosting offsite and online events.



Wunderbar makes stand-out creative projects that bring audiences and artists together on journeys of intrigue and wonder. We like to turn the everyday upside down to inspire, challenge and nurture new ways to work, think and play.

Wunderbar is about extraordinary projects conceived by artists and made by audiences.

We are seriously curious and playfully disruptive, asking ‘What will happen if…’

The Wunderbar portfolio comprises a glorious, eclectic mix of performance, installation, extraordinary happenings, interactions, social events and games.

Our projects take place in all kinds of places: theatres, galleries and arts centres as well as everyday spaces like car parks, workplaces, hairdressers, living rooms and city streets.

Where we do it

Right now, most of our work takes place in and around Newcastle upon Tyne, north east England.

Our outlook is international. We work with artists from all over the world and digitize our work when we can so it can be accessed any time, any place. Wunderbar on Vimeo

Wunderbar projects have popped up in other parts of the UK and we expect this to happen more in the future.

How we came about

Wunderbar began in 2009 with our first festival in Newcastle upon Tyne. A second acclaimed festival took place in 2011.

Now Wunderbar’s evolved from festival to ongoing project so the play never stops.
