SHOW us what you’ve got is the message to artists, creatives, cultural venues and heritage sites.
Warwick District Council (WDC) is offering the chance for them to showcase what they have to offer at a month-long CultureFest set to take place in the build-up to and following the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
CultureFest aims to encourage the people who live, work and visit the area during the time of the Games to discover or rediscover the culture of Leamington, Warwick, Kenilworth and Whitnash.
Visitors will be able to experience all that the district has to offer from July 16 July to August 21.
WDC culture spokesman Coun Liam Bartlett said: “CultureFest is a great opportunity for the district’s creatives to showcase their talents. The festival will be seen by people from all over the world during the time of the Games and will bring a new audience to their work.”
There are many ways to get involved at CultureFest including volunteering to helpwith the smooth running of activities and events to ensure visitors have an enjoyable experience.
There will also be an opportunity to apply to feature at the event in the cultural programme or attend and participate in CultureFest events and activities.
Artists and creatives who want to perform at CultureFest are encouraged to download a new toolkit. This will be available from the CultureFest website next month. The toolkit will outline the selection process and criteria.
As part of Birmingham 2022, Warwick district will also host the Lawn Bowls and Para Lawn Bowls competition at the bowling greens in Leamington’s Victoria Park and the start and finish of the Cycling Road Race will be in Warwick’s St Nicholas Park.
