There’s little more than a week to go until HF ArtsFest and events are booking up fast.
The nine-day festival runs from 3-11 June, culminating in H&F Unity Day march and rally. Unity Day is open to all with no need for tickets but many other events must be booked in advance.
There are more than 200 events to choose from and most are free. They include exhibitions, drama, live music, film screenings, walking tours and more at many different venues across Hammersmith & Fulham.
“We’re celebrating the world class venues and artists living and working in Hammersmith & Fulham,” said the festival’s chair, Petrea Owens.
“HF ArtsFest is working in partnership with the council to make this a great borough for the arts.”
It is the fourth HF ArtsFest which has been getting more popular every year.
This year, a big, red bus will be touring H&F, bringing pop-up performances to neighbourhoods near you. It will celebrate the launch of the festival on Saturday 3 June and is part of this year’s theme of taking arts to the people.
Other highlights include:
- Rabbit mask-making workshops for kids
- A tour of the Science Museum’s archive in Blythe House
- Acclaimed country music singer Nikki Lane at Bush Hall
- A theatre workshop for adults
- Clay modelling exhibition by children with special needs
- A hands-on gardening workshop for children
