In March 2016, Crew for Calais partnered with Arcola Festival to produce the week-long Crew for Calais festival of comedy and live performance.  All events were pay-what-you-choose and the money raised went directly to Crew for Calais' work.  We are grateful for the support of all the Arcola staff, and for the brilliant comedians and artists that gave their time and talents for free to make the festival happen.
