ArtWaves 2021 on Saturday 6th - Sunday 7th March 2021
Since the sad announcement from ArtWaves festival organisers that our 2020 festival would need to be postponed, the team have been working hard behind the scenes with partners and Bridlington’s signature venue, Bridlington Spa to bring you the same amazing event just with a new date.
Before the full force of Covid-19 and all the related restrictions became public knowledge, ArtWaves had secured and were ready to deliver, a creative brimmed programme of artists to provide workshops and demonstrations, showcasing wondrous installations and take you on magical parades across the promenade with new partners, Hull Carnival Arts.
The on demand and annual favourite Art Market, Open Exhibition and ArtWaves Paint Out were making a return as well as new exciting elements such as a photography walkabout workshop, urban sketching day and the inclusion of Hull Beats Bus leading the Urban Twist element with dance, music and art.
The festival is proud to announce that all this wonderful talent showed no hesitation in agreeing to the new dates and are extremely excited to reveal that ArtWaves festival will now take place on March 6th and 7th 2021 with the fringe events being held across the week in advance, commencing 1st March 2021.
ArtWaves Festival Director, Lauren Frost said, ‘It was with great disappointment we had to make the decision to postpone the event but a necessary one and we are extremely excited to be returning next year to fill Bridlington with culture and vibrancy. Our hope is that we can engage as much of the community as possible to bring some colour to coast and celebrate creativity whilst helping to strengthen tourism by encouraging more visitors to the seaside.’
Revised workshop booking slots will be released in the coming months alongside a full festival programme and fresh information on artist opportunities such as the highly anticipated Open Exhibition, Paint Out Competition and Art Market which is recruiting further trade stands to transform the Bridlington Spa Royal Hall into a bustling art fair of artists, suppliers, creators and makers. Those who are interested in exhibiting at the festival should get in touch for an application form.
All information on the opportunities to get involved will be updated on the festival website artwaves.co.uk and ticketing enquiries can be made via the Bridlington Spa box office on 01262 678258.
