Abergavenny Arts Festival – Coming in 2018
  • News

Abergavenny Arts Festival will be taking place Friday 29th June to Sunday 1st July 2018

Abergavenny Arts Festival will showcase amateur and professional artists from the vibrant local arts scene, as well as inviting some exciting artists and art practitioners from further afield.

Abergavenny is situated on the edge of the scenic Brecon Beacons National Park. The theme for the 2018 festival will be water, complementing the Welsh tourism theme, ‘Year of the Sea’.

We hope that locals, families, groups, schools, businesses and visitors of all ages, abilities and artistic tastes will join this celebration of the arts. Our programme is currently being curated and we welcome interest from artists and arts practitioners who may wish to exhibit, practise or perform.

We will include painting, dance, drawing, sculpture, theatre, photography, performance, film, poetry, music and comedy as well as street performances and interactive artistic experiences. We’ll also be displaying the results of several competitions.

As well as exhibitions and performances, there will be plenty of opportunities to ‘give it a go’ with workshops and creative craft sessions. Abergavenny is renowned as a market town, and street stalls will feature prominently, with artists’ works, gifts and souvenirs, and delicious food and produce available to take home.

Abergavenny Arts Festival is supported by a growing network of artists, community groups, volunteers, businesses, sponsors and friends and wish to include the widest audience possible to create an arts festival that can be enjoyed by all.
