Journeys Festival began in 2013. Its core aim is to celebrate and highlight the extraordinary and powerful artwork, music, creativity, culture and experiences that refugee artists bring to the UK. 

Working across a wide range of creative media and disciplines, Journeys Festival aims to bring the exceptional talent of local, national and international refugee artists into the public eye. 

Journeys Festival combines live music, hands-on artist-led workshops, theatre, performance, film, discussion, exhibitions and pop-up events to create a vibrant and engaging programme of events. 

In 2016 we will be working with a host of new partners to create exceptional opportunities to engage with outstanding art, performance, music and theatre from a diverse range refugee artists. 

The main Festival will take place in beautiful Jubilee Square - where there will be a live music and performance stage, hands-on artist led workshops, Pop Up performances, a Global Food Kitchen and much more to excite and delight all ages! 

In Orton Square there will be a new arrival...an interactive, creative space with activities and events will appear...we can't say any more....but keep your eyes peeled from 1st August and keep checking our Facebook page for updates...
