BEAM 2012

BEAM 2012 took place from 22 – 24 June at Brunel University. Check out the film on our homepage for festival highlights, or go to the Programme page for full programme listings from across the festival weekend. Thanks to all the artists who took part and to everyone who made it to the festival weekend!


BEAM has begun today and the Artaud building is looking cooler and cooler with all the various installations going up. Tickets are now available at the door for anyone that still wants to come down and see what all the fuss is about. Single day tickets are also available throughout the weekend.
