Drayton Arts Fest

DraytonArtsFest is produced by a group of volunteers. Events will be held in venues in and around the town, such as Festival Drayton, St. Mary’s church, the Library, local pubs, cafes and shops. Many of the events will be free, but in some cases a fee will be charged to assist with costs. The brochure of the Festival programme will be published in September with details of booking arrangements. The online programme will be updated regularly.

Its aimed at any age and is run by the RVS.
Classes inclde arts and crafts, exercise, zumba, poetry, using technology and many more.
May be something of interest in particular to those feeling isolated.

We are delighted to announce that the 2021 edition of the Market Drayton Schools Calendar is now published.

Because of Covid 19 restrictions, the paintings from each of the 13 participating schools have been chosen by local artist Malcolm Hague from the previous 2014 – 2020 editions of the Calendar. Local businesses have again generously sponsored the printing costs.

We are hoping that local people will continue to support the Calendar Project, which has raised a total of over £8000 for schools over the last 6 years. Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions, we are unable to sell the Calendars outside Morrisons this year.

However the 2021 Calendar is on sale at the usual price of £5.00. through the following outlets

The Festival Drayton Centre [front desk]
Brosy’s Computer Shop [by Wilko”s]
The Style Court Hairdressers, Wilkinsons Walk
For cash on delivery to your door:
Suzanne Edwards [sznnedwards@gmail.com] or Phone 01630 698088

All proceeds from sales of the 2021 Calendar this year will be given to each of the 13 participating schools in the form of a whole day Art workshop offered by Malcolm Hague to be organised within the current academic year.

Drayton Arts Fest was sharing a COVID-19 update.
Covid 19
The national situation with Covid 19 is currently predicted to remain unstable for the coming months. It is therefore with regret that, for public health and safety reasons, the Drayton ArtsFest Team has made the decision to postpone the Drayton Arts Festival events until October 2021.
On the positive side, our planned special headline act ‘The Anderlaides Trio’ from Madeira, are very happy to come and perform next year, when we hope that health conditions and travel to the UK should be back to some normality .
Also, we are delighted to announce that the 2021 edition of the Market Drayton Schools Calendar will be happening and going to press next week. Because of Covid 19 restrictions, the paintings from each of the 13 participating schools have been specially chosen by local artist Malcolm Hague from the previous 2014- 2020 editions of the Calendar. Local businesses have again generously sponsored the printing costs and copies of the calendars will be on sale at the usual price of £5.00.
All proceeds from sales of 2021 edition of the Calendar will be given to each of the 13 participating schools in the form of a whole day Art workshop offered by Malcolm Hague to be organised within the current academic year.
In the meantime please stay safe.
