Droitwich ArtsFest bags £1,000 from Tesco’s community grant scheme

Droitwich Arts Network is delighted to announce it has bagged £1,000 from Tesco’s Bags of Help community grant scheme to support Droitwich arts festival

Bags of Help is run in partnership with environmental charity Groundwork, and sees grants raised from the sale of carrier bags awarded to thousands of local community projects every year. Since launching in 2015, it’s provided more than £43 million to over 10,000 local community projects.

Millions of shoppers have voted in Tesco stores up and down the country and it can now be revealed that Droitwich ArtsFest has been awarded £1,000. The timing is perfect as ArtsFest starts on Saturday 30th June at 12 noon in St Andrews Square, Droitwich

Droitwich ArtsFest lasts four weeks with mostly free events including music, art, crafts, dance, exhibitions, drama, and poetry. The aim is to engage the general public in a wide variety of artistic activities, and to encourage all sections of the community to attend. The full programme can be seen at www.droitwichartsfest.org

Festival organiser, Rhys Jones, commented “Receiving this funding from Tesco makes a significant impact on helping us to meet the costs of an ambitious festival, particularly as most of the events are free to attend”.

DAN exhibition in Droitwich Library

The exhibition of Droitwich Arts Network members in the Library is the last event of the ArtsFest 2017. The exhibition was organised with the open call to all full DAN members and groups to submit their works in any 2D technique.

The selection included watercolours and acrylic paintings, pencils and coloured pencils drawings, pastels, photography and textiles.
