Brand new festivals are set to take place in Worcester over the course of the project, showcasing national and international creative talent and supporting local emerging work.

The festivals are funded by the Arches-Worcester project. Severn Arts is a principle partner in this project and is the lead organisation for the Festivals. Severn Arts is a leading arts charity providing education, participation and engagement programmes across Worcestershire. The organisation is ambitious for Worcester and Worcestershire: passionate about building and developing arts projects and opportunities to help raise the city and county’s profile as a vibrant, rich cultural destination.

The Arches Worcester project is supported by the Department of Culture Media and Sports’ Cultural Development Fund, administered by Arts Council England.
