The ‘Festival Sessions’ is coming to Hayfield after successfully securing funding from Arts Council England, National Lottery. The festival is a series of sessions that will run from 2nd – 4th September you can buy individual tickets to events or a weekend ticket which gives you entry to all. We’re bringing to the High Peak a varied programme including drag and vogue, DJs, live music, storytelling and community art installations.
Artists from Manchester, Sheffield, and the High Peak will perform in different sessions over the weekend including a cabaret night, family festival, dance party, Zen Tent, ‘Introducing’ session and an experimental art installation – there is something to appeal to a wide variety of audiences.’ Festival Director, Joss Underwood said, “Our vision for the festival is to be inclusive and accessible to people of all backgrounds, which is why the programme is so varied. We want to ensure that the art we put on is representative of People of Colour, LGBTQIA+ and those who are neurodiverse. There isn’t enough visibility or diversity in the arts in rural areas and that is why our festival exists”.
Tickets are now live and we’re giving you a chance to save 15% on all tickets up until the 31st of May! Use code EARLYBIRD15 when purchasing.
