A fun, creative and diverse programme of cultural events and activities.

Bigger, better and more joyful than ever ! 

We're really excited to hear from local groups and individuals who would like to be involved in the Arts Festival in 2024. We're busy programming an engaging and fun two weeks for all the community to enjoy and look forward to sharing the programme with you all soon. There will be lots of participatory events and another big community concert in the Cathedral featuring many local schools, a live orchestra and professional soloists. The festival has grown year on year since our rebrand in 2021 and we look forward to hearing from you! 

Our 2023 poster has landed !

So... what do you think? We've made it as colourful and fun as our programme of events, which we will start revealing soon!

Share the love by tagging your friends on Facebook and Instagram and pencil in the dates of the #ElyArtsFestival2023 : June 16th to 30th!
