Bywell Arts Festival      Arts festival logo

This annual community event draws people from across the region. Local artists display their work in St Andrew's and St Peter's churches. The festival runs from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon and refreshments are available.

Well established as an exhibition for original works, the festival includes the sale of numbered prints, and some of the artists will be offering prints for sale creating a more affordable option and appeal to a wider range of buyers. See below for this year's programme.
