BRBAC (Reigate and Banstead Arts Council) ran its first Arts Festival in 2012. We have been running them every two years since then so this is our 4th Festival.

At first we ran a week of events based in the Harlequin Theatre, Redhill. In subsequent festivals we added interactive workshops for children and adults and new venues in Redhill.

Now we want to spread our wings and share the amazing talents and opportunities to get involved in the arts, of all kinds, across the whole of the borough.

There are 44 member groups in BRBAC covering a wide variety of performing and visual arts genres, but there are many more groups and individuals making great art, music and drama of all kinds across our borough.

This festival is for everyone

If you want to see an exhibition, if you want to be in an audience, if you want to share your art, perform your music, stage your latest play. If you want to join a group and get more involved in your local community and express yourself through the arts, regardless of age or experience, then this festival is for you. Take Part! Your Local Arts Festival.
