Creative Festivals 2020

The new collaborative partnership of Creative Festivals has adapted its festivals in line with the covid-19 emergency. 

These three independent festivals have come together in a new partnership this year to support opportunities for everyone, regardless of who they are or where they are, to participate in culture and creativity. 

Across the three we will be focused on reaching out to more people, working towards positive futures and looking at mental health in young people, climate change, ageing through the life course, and public health and everyday creativity. We welcome information about any and all activities and participatory work: these are open and inclusive festivals and we want to showcase whatever you are doing!


Thank you to everyone who got involved in the series of pre-festival events we held across the country in January. We were overwhelmed by the interest, ideas and commitment to making May a month of vibrant creativity, accessible to everyone. We know that it has been impossible for many of you to bring your original ideas to fruition, but we really welcome your input and would love to hear from you if you would still like to be part of the festivals in a different way.
