Daventry Town Council is pleased to announce the dates for this years' Arts Festival. Running from 16th – 24th June 2018, it will be a vibrant and dynamic week celebrating the town of Daventry and playing host to a multitude of creative and entertaining performers, musicians, bands, poets and authors, to name but a few.

After the success of last years' Arts Festival, Town Mayor and Chairman of Daventry Town Council, Lynne Taylor, said, "we are currently putting together an exciting programme for June 2018, filled with different activities and performances to suit an array of audiences. It is so heart-warming to see our community coming together to celebrate the arts in Daventry, especially as many performers are local to the area. More »

Our town is full of creative individuals and groups and the Arts Festival is the perfect opportunity to celebrate them. I thoroughly enjoyed last year's events and I am looking forward to seeing what this year brings."

Many of the events taking place over the course of the Arts Festival will be free to attend and a full programme will be released nearer the time. If you are a performer, entertainer, poet, writer, group, club, society or just generally creative and would like to be involved in this year's Art Festival, please contact Daventry Town Council directly at events@daventrytowncouncil.gov.uk or 01327 301 246.
