Northwich Festival of Arts to unleash town’s creativity


Creativity and artistic talent will be on show at the Northwich Festival of Arts 2018, taking place this July.

Main organisers Northwich Business Improvement District (BID) have finalised the list of performers, activities and events that will be coming to the town, with the event aiming to showcase the culture and diversity present in Northwich.

BID manager Jane Hough has revealed what visitors throughout the month-long event can look forward to.

She explained: “Everything kicks off on Sunday 1st July when the Northwich Art Trail, organised by Visual Arts Cheshire, launches across the town and this is followed on Saturday 7th July by Northwich Art Shop’s Grand Day Out at the Memorial Court.” (Read more, here.)

Jane continued: “Later in the month, the Northwich River Festival is guaranteed to wow the crowds too and having seen what the Northwich Rotary Club has got lined up for the weekend of the 14th and 15th July, it’s definitely worth popping in the diary.” (Read more, here.)

As well as these events, the Northwich Festival of Arts also comprises a wide range of shows, exhibitions and workshops, shining the spotlight on talented individuals and organisations from Northwich and wider Mid-Cheshire.

Jane said: “Following many different applications to perform at the festival, we are very pleased with the line-up which includes activities from the creative mediums of art, music, dance, poetry, sculpture and writing, with different elements for people of all ages.

“The BID wanted to ensure this event brought something a little different to Northwich and I believe visitors and residents will enjoy the variety of what has been lined up.”

Visitors are also reminded to keep an eye out for colourful additions around Northwich over the summer months as the town enters the North West in Bloom competition.
