Welcome to the Chapel Allerton Arts Festival!
It's our 20th Festival this year so let's make it special
The festival has a always been a group effort. Volunteers spend much of the year planning the event, booking the artists, raising sponsorship, liaising with schools and local community groups. The list is almost endless. Now is your chance to make the weekend the success it deserves to be. Stewards are the friendly face of the festival to visitors and help raise funds. Could you spare 2 hours? You can choose a time which suits you. If you'd like to do your bit, fill out this form and we'll be in touch. Or perhaps you would like to run a stall on the Saturday.

We are a charity and rely partly on donations to fund the event. If you'd like to help us out, we'd be very grateful. Thank you very much for your support.

This is an exciting development for the Festival who are celebrating their 20th year. We will be working in partnership with local arts venues and businesses who will be hosting these new events, with the aim of extending the community coverage of the festival activities and provide new artistic experiences for the local people in the area.

Mapping the Festival at 20

As this is the 20th year of Chapel Allerton Arts Festival we want to celebrate by building a model Chapel Allerton in the Methodist Hall, which you can fill with your favourite things from this year’s festival, memories from the past, or maybe even things from your imagination.
So bring your adults with you for a fun day of making and creating together.
We have also created a film about art and making with some of the children from St Matthew’s and Chapel Allerton primary schools and there will be special screenings of the film at 11.30am and 4.30pm.
