Leek Arts Festival 2018

The biggest creative festival in Leek’s entertainment calendar is set  to start in April – and the Foxlowe Arts Centre is, once again, proud to be the venue for the extravaganza’s main events.  This year’s Leek Arts Festival is, yet again, set to see some big names visit the Staffordshire Moorlands – namely comedian Tom Allen and singer-songwriter Aerynn, plus both Fairport Convention and Barbara Dickson, will be making welcome return visits to the Foxlowe Arts Centre.

Festival vice-chairman Phil Edmeades said the committee are delighted with using the Foxlowe as the ‘home’ of Leek Arts Festival. He said: “Since 2012 when Leek Arts Festival had to make a move to the Foxlowe following the sudden closure of our former base at The Swan, the relationship between the two organisations has proved a huge success.

“We are delighted to be able to call the Foxlowe ‘our home’ and equally delighted to be a part of the continued growth and expansion of this wonderful volunteer project.  This year the Foxlowe will host a record number of more than 20 Leek Arts Festival events – we really couldn’t manage without it or its brilliant volunteers.”
