Screening of Alborada Films’ 2021 documentary Santiago Rising, directed by Alborada co-editor Nick MacWilliam, at PAPAYA Fest in Bristol.
Bristol-based arts collective Popelei (the female-led team behind award-winning international theatre show ‘Manuelita’) announce the return of their deliciously juicy festival PAPAYA Fest, which will bring an exciting mix of Anglo-Latinx artists and offer local audiences an incredible array of new theatre, music, film and talks across one week in October.

The second edition of the festival will take place at The Wardrobe Theatre and The Old Market Assembly from 7-15 October. PAPAYA Fest platforms a proudly LGBTQ+ friendly message and champions female voices within its unique fusion of British and Latin American cultures.
Tamsin Hurtado Clarke, British-Venezuelan founder and artistic director of Popelei, says “It’s great to bring PAPAYA Fest back to the city and celebrate all the wonderful things that happen when two cultures, inspired by one another, come together.”
