Eh?! What happens at a virtual festival!?!

Well we came up with a fabulous plan and hastily drew a new logo...We will be:

  • Holding a live Arts Market on Instagram @notinbelfordartsfestival 11th & 12th July.

  • Showcasing the 80+ amazing Artists, Makers and Performers who were planned for this year on this website and social media on the festival weekend and throughout the year. Please browse around, follow the links, buy buy buy and support creative talent and small business! (remember to tell 'em BAF sent you!)

  • Contemporary collecting your lockdown, social distancing and restriction easing experiences to create a new archive for our Pop-up Museum 2021 and Belford resident artist Sarah Riseborough to work with. Join in here!

  • You can find out what our volunteers, venues and village has been up to whilst you have been away.

  • And you can visit the gallery to remind yourself of past festivals!

Lots of our activity will be shared via social media so follow us, like us and take part:
