Bilborough Arts Festival 

We're back for 2021!  Dates for this year's BArts festival are Sat 26th June - Sat 3rd July. 

We have an open call for artists and local residents to help shape the programme of activities - with paid opportunities for creative workshop leaders. 


Please complete our online form if you're an artist able to exhibit, if you could run a creative workshop (on zoom or in person) or would like to help volunteer to celebrate community creativity! 

We missed BArts last year due to the national lockdown but the voluntary organising team behind the festival have been getting ready for the moment we can meet again!  


We're pleased to announce a new collaboration with Lit Theatre Company based in Bilborough, who are delivering Arts Awards in 4 local primary schools and beginning a new Walking Stories project, gathering memories and objects about local heritage.  

ColourSplash - Window Art for BArts!  

Get your pencils, paints, felt-tips and colouring pencils out and display some art in your windows - inspired by the words 'ColourSplash'.  Let us know what street you live on by emailing and we'll put together a street map so that you can enjoy a leisurely walk to view the Window Art for BArts. 


BArts is a voluntary association, supported by National Lottery Awards for All and Bilborough Councillors; run by a dedicated team of local volunteers.
