Mansfield Arts Festival
The Mansfield Arts Festival is a two week celebration of local cultural and artistic talent.
Artists, musicians, singers, dancers, thespians and entertainers are being invited to come together once again this summer to celebrate the best of Mansfield, when the Mansfield Arts Festival returns for a second year.
The festival, which is organised by Mansfield District Council, will take place between 6 July and 21 July.
A number of events have already been confirmed for the festival including the James Maud Camera Club exhibition and Mansfield Society of Artists' exhibition at Mansfield Museum. The Arts Festival programme will also feature the closing show of the Palace Theatre's community production of Brassed Off.
People from across the District are encouraged to get involved during the fortnight by either holding their own performance or exhibition, or participating in one of the events currently being organised.
If you would like to stage your own event during the fortnight please register at via our Mansfield Arts Festival online registration form.
The closing date for registering events is Monday 20 May 2013.
Performances and exhibitions can take place in a venue local to you, or the Council may be able to help you find a suitable indoor or outdoor venue. All registered events will be promoted as part of the festival.
The Mansfield Arts Festival was created in 2012 and inspired by the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. The event saw a range of community events from storytelling to acrobatics, big band jazz performances to guided tours of Mansfield town centre. The festival was brought to a close with a series of seven mini plays on five outdoor stages across Mansfield, called Not Much Matches Mansfield by Kevin Fegan.
