Droitwich Arts Network (DAN) has announced an exciting programme for this year’s Droitwich Arts Festival. 

Lasting four weeks and five weekends, ArtsFest offers a wide variety of free events, many in the open air, encouraging the general public to experience a range of arts related activities.

The festival is anchored on five Saturdays and starts on Saturday, June 30, at 12pm in St Andrews Square. Announcements will be made by the Droitwich Town Crier accompanied by fanfares from a brass quartet, The Mayor of Droitwich and Nigel Huddleston MP. The afternoon will be filled with Dance – Belly Dancing, Salsa, and Zumba. The public will be encouraged to join in, but can just watch if they prefer.

On Saturday, July 7, the public will be able to create a ‘People’s Gallery’ to be situated near the High Street during the day. In the evening, a festival highlight will be a free music event in St Andrews Square featuring Mumbo Jumbo offering country blues music with powerful songs and punchy vocals, supported by The Ollie Miles Band playing rock and pop numbers from the last five decades. Gates open at 6.30pm.

More details on the other planned events, including events for families and children on Saturday, July 14, will be published closer to the date.
