Wirksworth Festival - 8 - 24 September 2017

This year’s Wirksworth Festival is just around the corner. From 8 - 24 September an exciting and eclectic line up of contemporary arts of every kind come to the Derbyshire Dales town.

The Art & Architecture Trail kicks things off on the opening weekend (9 - 10 Sept) and is followed by a full programme of performance and workshops, including live music such as contemporary folk and jazz, dance, mystical story telling, craft courses and more. 

If you are able to make the Art & Architecture Trail, look out for the specially-commissioned Pavilion in the Community Square, up for one weekend only it’s the winning design from Nottingham Trent University architecture students.

This year’s Curated Exhibition, Veneer, has been put together by artists and researchers Louisa Chambers and Emily Strange and runs 9,10, 16 & 17 Sept.
