your artists, your festival.
The first HF Arts Fest was held in 2014. Over the following 5 years, it grew into a highly successful event featuring hundreds of performances and activities led by many local artists. In 2018, we were delighted to take under our umbrella, JOY, our specialist disability arts festival. We remain committed partners in JOY which is now led by Turtle Key Arts.
The Festival is constantly evolving but accessibility, inclusivity and localism remain our core values. During the lockdowns we were unable to offer our usual month of activity so instead we went online and popup – and invited you to be very much part of it by sharing your work with us, which we thank everyone for taking part.
As we move forwards we are putting together a new programme of activities, so watch this space!
The Festival is a registered charity run by a board of volunteer trustees.
