Plans are underway for this year’s HF ArtsFest and if you’d like to run an event it’s time to sign-up.

This year’s theme is ‘Taking Arts to the People’. Residents will be able to enjoy pop-up performances and other events in their local neighbourhoods.

This will be on top of a packed programme of music, drama, exhibitions, tours and more.  

The festival is backed by Hammersmith & Fulham Council and takes place on 3 to 11 June. Visit HF Arts Fest’s website if you’d like to run an event.

“The fourth HF ArtsFest brings some brilliant new projects under the banner of ‘Taking Arts to the People’,” said HF ArtsFest chair Petrea Owens.  

“Residents can participate in a series of projects offered by local artists, enjoy pop-up performances around the borough and come along to the arts and crafts fair and other events at the Hammersmith Town Hall.   

“They’re all brilliant additions to the extensive programme offered by our fabulous local arts partners. There’s something for everyone.”

Early highlights

This year, artists and performers will be coming to a neighbourhood near you thanks to the HF ArtsFest bus. 

There will also be two free launch events at Hammersmith Town Hall: A community arts fair with local artists on Saturday 3 June, as well as activities and performances on Sunday 4 June. 

Last year saw more than 130 events held by 400 artists across H&F. This year’s festival, which is sponsored by St George, is hoped to be even bigger.
