A festival which has been providing a platform for Warrington creatives for more than a decade is set for a relaunch in 2024.
Culture Warrington’s annual Contemporary Arts Festival has previously been held in the autumn but will be moving to springtime next year and going forwards.
This is to unlock more funding opportunities for the event which could see it grow in the future, develop its outdoor programme and position the festival at a time of year when there will be more venue and staff resources to support it.
However, to provide a stopgap and an offering for WCAF audiences in the meantime, there will still be a small-scale festival between September and November this year under the banner ‘WCAF Presents’.
This will encompass theatre productions, contemporary dance, exhibitions and even aerial dance theatre.
