Community Festivals

We host a variety of community festivals in our building every year.

Our reading festival for families, Book Buzz, is a celebration of books and reading. Taking place in Spring each year, this free event includes arts and crafts, workshops, a Book Swap, visits from local writers and illustrators, and lots of other activities centered around books. 

We take part in Fun Palaces, a one-day event that invites people of all ages into the building to enjoy activities exploring art, creativity and science. Fun Palaces happens all over the country in October each year. Find out more about Fun Palaces

Our Big Draw event is part of one of the biggest drawing and art festivals in the UK. Families can enjoy life drawing, workshops from artists, and more. Read more about The Big Draw

TogetherFest is artsdepot’s annual celebration of creativity and our community. Watch local artists and groups perform on the Community Stage, join workshops and classes, and explore the venue – try games, watch performances, make arts and crafts and get involved in many more activities.
