Applications now open for Northwich Festival of Arts 2020


Northwich BID is on the lookout for artists and creatives to perform at the town’s Festival of Arts.

Taking place in July this year, the event will showcase the cultural and artistic talent that exists in Northwich and surrounding areas, and will build upon the success of the last two festivals.

The deadline for expressions of interest is midnight on Friday 14th February so potential applicants now have just under four weeks to apply and let the BID know what they plan to deliver.

Northwich BID Manager Jane Hough has outlined the kind of activities they’re looking for people or groups to showcase throughout the festival.

“Activities at the festival can take place both indoor and outdoor and we’re looking for individuals or groups to deliver performances or sessions that will have the wow factor,” explained Jane.

She added: “We welcome performances from a range of disciplines including theatre, music, dance, film, digital arts, visual arts, pavement art, graffiti art, cartoonists and tattoo art among many others.

“Practitioners will need to co-ordinate their activities within the town centre.”

Northwich BID will once again be working with a number of partners to deliver the festival.

The festival will also encompass pre-existing events that will be taking place in July – these include The Visual Arts Cheshire Art Trail, Northwich Art Shop’s Grand Day Out and Northwich Rotary’s River Festival.
