Our festival takes place in venues

and locations spread across

the whole village.

It's a village takeover if you will!

On street parking is available

in the village.


The venues are easily accessible

if walking poses no problem, 

however they are far apart

so we do have a shuttle bus 

that will be running from 

five points across the village,

for you to make use of.

Please look for the blue bus signs

or our friendly volunteers in

Belford Arts Festival Crew T-shirts

who will happily direct and help you.

The brochure also contains a map.


As our festival takes place in venues and locations across the village, we recommend that anyone with limited mobility drive between venues as on street parking should be available nearby, or if possibly and able too, use the shuttle bus.

Most of our venues are wheelchair friendly although some will require support to navigate small lips.


Please ask for support if you need it.

Look out for our friendly volunteers in Belford Arts Festival Crew T-shirts.

Accessible toilets can be found at Bell View, Sunnyhills and the Blue Bell Hotel.


To help you navigate all that the festival has to offer: its artists, makers, performances, activities, locations, pubs and eateries you can purchase

a festival programme/event guide

for £2.

This brochure will be on sale at the Welcome Point located in the village

Market Place on Festival

weekend 13th & 14th July

and for pre-sale from

Belford Newsagents

the week leading up to the Festival.


The brochure includes a welcome note, articles about our projects, a map, artist index, evaluation form and timetable.

All proceeds are considered donations and go towards next year's festival. Any support is hugely appreciated!
