Bilborough Arts Festival 

This year's annual Arts Festival will need to be a little different!  We're busy pondering  how best to support local artists, community groups and schools to celebrate all your amazing creativity; and ensure projects can take place in new ways. 


More than a week-long Arts Festival, we've been working on a number of long term community projects, such as the weekly youth music sessions led by Josh Sims and Woven musicians at St Johns; and the Fircroft Community Garden activities with Artist Shamila Chady and Brocklewood School.  We'll be in touch as projects develop!


What creative activities have you been up to during lockdown?


We'd love to create an online gallery of the artists who would have been exhibiting at the library this year.  If you would have been exhibiting with us, and have high quality jpegs of your work, please get in touch!


Let us know how you've been getting creative during lockdown, and share with us your poetry, creative writing, photography and paintings! 


Please email us your images and messages to - we'd love to see what you've been up to! 


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