Newlyn Arts Festival
In its ninth year, Newlyn Arts Festival continues to bring together events and exhibitions involving artists and makers in Newlyn.
Newlyn Arts Festival announces with great pleasure that the distinguished actor, theatre and film director MICHAEL GRANDAGE CBE has become its Patron. Mr Grandage has very strong links with the area having been raised in Newlyn and educated at Humphry Davy School. He is currently the Artistic Director of the Michael Grandage Company in London which promotes bringing young people into the theatre.
The festival is a not for profit group run by volunteers from around the community with events being held over a two week period in late September/early October each year.
The programme invariably includes exhibitions and events at Newlyn Art Gallery as well as other locations within Newlyn including 'The Centre' a vibrant community centre in the heart of the village.
The festival is supported financially by donations, small grants and sponsorship by several local businesses.
Any individual or organisation interested in supporting the festival is encouraged to contact us.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
