Kenilworth Arts Festival is an annual, nationally-recognised festival that brings together leading writers, musicians and visual artists for one-off events in different venues around the town. Since launching in 2016, the festival has become a well-established fixture in the regional calendar and is attended by thousands of people each year, including local residents and visitors from further afield. The festival also has a strong online profile (280,000 ‘impressions’ on Twitter in September 2018 alone), and is regularly featured in local press, lifestyle magazines and specialist publications.

This year’s festival programme will be our biggest and boldest yet, featuring international artists, UK premieres and exclusive performances. Among the acts confirmed to appear are award-winning singer-songwriter Nadia Reid, trumpet player Yazz Ahmed, pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason, jazz group Darius Brubeck Quartet, award-winning human rights campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez, writer & editor Nikesh Shukla and Sunday Times best-selling novelist Elizabeth Macneal. There will also be community events and family activities. You can find out more about the first acts confirmed to appear on our Artists page.

  • Affiliation to leading writers, musicians and visual artists
  • Unique opportunities to entertain clients and reward staff
  • Support an event that delivers major economic and cultural benefits for the region
  • Opportunity to demonstrate community engagement & meet corporate social responsibility objectives (the festival is a not-for-profit, volunteer-led entity)
