Event Details

This year’s Festival brings you an outdoor Sculpture Trail with a twist. Sponsored by Longley Farm and co-created by the community, the River of Art runs through the very centre of the Arts Festival and our town.


Artists, schools and community groups have worked together to explore and highlight the River Holme, showcasing the talents of collaborative work. Embracing this year’s festival theme of ‘Follow the Swallow’ ideas of flight, journeys, rhythm and recycling have all been indulged to create these eye-catching, thought-provoking artworks. A Sculpture Trail that can be enjoyed for free encouraging you to seek out the river and celebrate your community.
