The Village Jazz & Folk Roots Fringe 2018 - Moving beyond the (Regent) Street !

Chapel Allerton Festival have been successful in securing Arts Council National Lottery Project Grants to support the 2018 Festival. This year we are introducing new Fringe Themed mini- festival activities within the wider community to run alongside the main festival weekend. In addition to the short film festival on Monday 27th August, there will be a poetry festival at Seven Arts on Tuesday 28 August, an arts trail in Gledhow Valley Woods (Monday 27th August - Sunday 2nd September) a village jazz festival (Thursday 30 Aug – Sinday 2 Sept), Ukulele workshop (Thursday 30 August) and a folk roots festival fringe (Thursday 30th August- Saturday 1st September). After last years success we are extending the artist cafe run on Saturday 1st September.

This is an exciting development for the Festival in our aim to spread the activities and fun throughout the whole of Chapel Allerton not just Regent Street. We will be working in partnership with local arts venues and businesses who will be hosting these new events. We want to extend the community coverage of festival activities and provide new artistic experiences for the local people in the area. Further details will become available on the website as we build up the programme for the new “Fringe” activities. So watch this space !
