A week of 14-18 NOW events at LIFT Festival

25 June 2014

Over all of this week LIFT Festival are presenting a series of 14-18 NOW events at Battersea Arts Centre and Southbank Centre, culminating with a weekend take-over at Battersea Arts Centre (28 – 29 June 2014) featuring 25 artists who create immersive performances, interactive encounters, installations and music.

Tackling past events to cast light on present issues, the eclectic line-up of unforgettable performances, including Forced Entertainment’s premiere of The Notebook (watch the trailer), asks us to reflect upon a war that shaped the world we live in.

See the full programme.

14-18 NOW OFFER: we’re offering £5 off tickets to all LIFT/14-18 NOW events (excluding The Notebook). Tickets must be booked through LIFT’s website – just type the code 14-18NOW before checking out to claim the offer.
