BAWTRY ARTS FESTIVAL 2023 – 17th to 24th June

Come and join us Sunday 4th December 2022

The week will include all forms of “the arts” from music, dance, drama, painting, crafts, film, poetry, fashion, quizzes & heritage trail walks. It will have something for everyone: young, old and even the ‘in between’ age groups.

On the opening Saturday there will be performers and activities in the town centre throughout the day into early evening. This will include a community “Arts” project so please come along and get involved.  The intention is to have a Craft Fair on the Sunday.

On the closing Saturday, following on from the BARS Sports Day, there will be family entertainment late afternoon in the White Hart outside garden area finishing with a rock band “finale” into the evening.

Full programme leaflets will be available in mid-May from the library & various retail outlets around the town. They will also be delivered with the June edition of the Today magazine.

Most events are free to attend but voluntary donations will always be welcomed. It promises to be another great week. Please support your town and enjoy as many events as you can.
