JOY

JOY is the flagship project of HF ArtsFest celebrating local established and emerging disabled artists within the community. JOY is produced by Turtle Key Arts with support from the Lyric Theatre.

This year JOY is bigger and better than ever, and will culminate in a 4 day programme at the Lyric Theatre and on Lyric Square from 5 - 8 June 2019. We have programmed 5 amazing nights of theatre, music and dance, with some of the most exciting artists showcasing their work. Scroll down the page to see 2019's programme!

In addition to our public programme we are also run an extensive engagement programme with schools and community groups across the borough.

We are grateful for the support of Hammersmith United Charities (HUC), Arts Council England, Dr Edwards and Bishop’s King Fulham Charity (DEBK), John Lyon's Charity, United Charities and the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.
