HF ArtsFest is led by a board of trustees who believe in the power of the arts to transform lives. We employ a professional producer to deliver the festival each year and expand our team when necessary to include additional staff and volunteers.

We work together with local artists and organisations to enhance the cultural life on offer in the borough.

Our Community hosts some of the most renowned theatres and artists in London and we believe that by working together we can create an annual Festival that will rank alongside the greats!


The HF ArtsFest became a Community Interest Organisation and a registered Charity No: 1162116 in June 2015.  The object of Charity is to advance the appreciation of and involvement in the arts in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham for the public benefit, in particular, but not exclusively, through the provision of an arts festival.

Some of the things we do:

  • Provide information and support for professional, emerging and community artists
  • Facilitate and establish working relationships with strategic arts partners
  • Develop new projects together with local artists for the benefit of the wider community
  • Plan and implement a PR&M campaign for the festival and support partners in developing their own campaigns
  • Work with local residents and organisations to address issues of isolation, exclusion, health and well-being
  • Collect and analyse feedback to measure the impact and benefit to the community


The HF ArtsFest has a Board of 7 Trustees who have many years of experience working in the arts and business. The Board meets quarterly to oversee the smooth running of the CIO and registered charity no: 1162116.
