The Suffolk Coast

Halesworth Art Festival 2018

The Halesworth Arts Festival originated 17 years ago. Now a major force in the arts in North Suffolk, it attracts capacity crowds every October, who come for the chance to see top quality artists in small, intimate surroundings.

The Halesworth Arts Festival is a non profit making charity, relying on the generosity of many local businesses and individuals essential to help fund an event of this nature. Unlike many other Festivals, it receives no Arts Council, Lottery or other central Government help.

The Festival is proud to have as Patrons: Bernard Hill, Maggi Hambling, Diana Quick, Kenneth Sillito and Julia Blackburn

The Halesworth Arts Festival is run by entirely voluntary people, both on the organising committee and at the venues.

Here are some of the events that will feature at this year's festival, for a full round up see the website.
