Belford Arts Festival made its debut in 2017 and showcased over 30 artists and artisans work in a number of venues throughout the village. 

2018 looks to be an even better year and will take place from 26th July to 1st August. A number of community events will take place on weekdays and over the weekend artists and artisans will exhibit their work in a number of venues throughout the village. Already over 35 artists have applied to take part! We'll be running our community market as well as providing live entertainment from a number of regional musicians. 

Joining us this year will be Audrey, the Vintage Mobile Cinema. The last of her kind she was one of seven custom built in 1967 by The Ministry of Technology to tour the country, promoting modern production techniques to British industry.

The mobile cinema will be placed at Belford’s Market Square during the weekend of 28th and 29th July and can seat up to 24 people. As well as film showings throughout the day, the festival group are offering the Red Carpet package to companies or groups wanting to book a private screening. As well as canapés and bubbly served in Market House, a Georgian home overlooking Market Square, before their film starts, groups will also be offered cinematic nibbles and refreshments during the course of their screening.
