I’ve never felt a buzz quite like it. It was an inspiring event – and a provocative one. The future of British musicals may well have been born in those two days.

Mark Shenton, The Stage

BEAM2023 is the UK’s biggest showcase of new musical theatre. This exhilarating two-day event showcases the most exciting, bold, diverse and high-quality new musicals being created. Selected from an extensive nationwide search, excerpts and songs from 29 shows in development will be presented, alongside a variety of provocative and insightful panel discussions, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities.

As the largest gathering of the UK new musical theatre community, BEAM2023 brings together writers, producers, composers, venues, investors, agents and development partners for two days of inspiring content. To date, over 35 musicals from previous BEAMs have gone on to be fully staged, including new West End arrival Operation Mincemeat. BEAM2023 will celebrate the art form of musical theatre and introduce you to the potential hit shows of tomorrow.

BEAM is like Cannes – for musicals. The content is astonishing: brilliantly diverse material that proves musical theatre is alive and well in the UK.

BEAM was a game changer for me. Where else could I have seen that many pitches in two days? That was me done for the next two years of producing.
