CALL TO ARTISTS

Halesowen Food & Arts Festival – Saturday, 16th May 2020

 

This year the annual Food Festival in Halesowen is being extending to include all forms of art, music, the spoken word, performance and craft.

 

The new Halesowen Food & Arts Festival takes place on Saturday 16th May 2020 in and around Halesowen town centre.  The event will promote social inclusion for everyone and provide opportunities for artists and crafts workers to become involved with the public and to showcase their talents.

 

Artists will be able to hold public workshops, put on demonstrations and sell their work, or simply take along their pencils, inks, paints, brushes and craft materials to undertake work in a public setting.  Musicians will be able to take part in coordinated street and in-house performances.

 

Supermarkets, shops, cafés, the library, food & drink outlets and open public spaces will be used as creative art, craft, music and performance spaces to engage visitors to the town

 

The event is supported by local businesses that together form Halesowen Business Improvement District (BID).  Halesowen town centre has an average footfall of some 28,000 people per day. Delivering a new food and arts festival which is inclusive and is accessible to all offers a unique opportunity to increase visitor numbers and gives reason for people to linger and enjoy the activities.

 

There are a limited number of stalls available with costs yet to be ratified.
