WELCOME TO HF ARTSFESt

We are crowd funding for HF ArtsFest 2020

We are delighted that our Spacehive campaign to take the Big Red Bus round the borough again this summer has now reached its first target of 30 backers!

But we need more help to keep the Festival going. We are aiming to reach 15% of our funding target over Christmas to unlock further major donations. The minimum pledge is £2.

For the price of one cup of coffee you can make a huge difference!

So please pledge and forward on to all your friends who might be interested in supporting local artists and the community.
