Festivals gone by..

The Kenilworth Festival was transformed in 2016, when Lewis Smith joined and created Kenilworth Arts Festival.  

Lewis was a driving force behind the festival, spearheading it’s launch in 2016, In his time as artistic director he grew the festival into a thriving annual event. Working with local local companies like Kenilworth books,  Kenilworth Jazz Club and many others he brought leading writers, campaigners and musicians to Kenilworth from all over the UK and beyond. 

Lewis moved on from Kenilworth Arts Festival in 2019, but we will be forever grateful for him for creating the festival.  2020 has turned out to be tough year for us all, but we continue to bring you the high quality content that is now associated the festival. 

Here is a little look back on previous years, if you’re feeling nostalgic.
