Arts Festivals
Nottinghamshire 2019

In the modern world, where we have information about absolutely everything that is happening, all over the world, at our finger tips, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it is not surprising that we manage to miss what is actually going on just around the corner.

We are just too fixated with our own, personal, virtual bubble to notice.

You can therefore be forgiven if you have not heard about the arts festival that happens every year, in your neighbourhood. Despite all the publicity they keep throwing at you.

Well now you are reading this and you have no excuse!

You have a local arts festival! And it is crying out for you to get involved!

Here is a list of some of the established local arts festivals that have announced their dates already this year. We will be up dating this page regularly as we get more information about the other festivals.

If we have missed your festival, send us the details.
