Kenilworth Arts Festival is an annual, multi-genre festival, launched in 2016. The festival takes place over 10 days in September, with events, workshops and exhibitions held in various venues around the historic town of Kenilworth, Warwickshire.
At the heart of our programming is a desire to celebrate outstanding, original new work within the contemporary arts. Every year we bring together award-winning, internationally-acclaimed writers, musicians and visual artists from around the country (and beyond) for one-off events, transforming everyday spaces into magical venues and providing unique live experiences for audiences. In 2020 it is more important than ever that we use our platform to support artist, while bringing you high quality programming albeit in a whole new world.
Over the last few months our team have been working closely with Kenilworth’s COVID19 support group to keep isolated people and families inspired and help them get creative. The team has also been working with year 12 students at Kenilworth School, who have created the beautiful murals now up in Talisman Square. Along with Kenilworth Books, Friends of Talisman Square, The Orangery Flower Shop and Bagington Nurseries we have helped to transform Talisman Square.
Moving forward we are working on a summer creative exchange, each week throughout the summer we will be delivering you an instructional video on something creative, from literacy to sewing, floristry and puppetry.
More details to follow very soon.
