‘Welcome to the Harwich Festival.
We are pleased to announce that programming for next year’s Festival is now complete. The theme for HF16 is ‘Hidden Gems’.
HF16 will celebrate local talent and the unique beauty of our landscape, history and heritage while also bringing in performances from internationally acclaimed artists to provide a wonderful mix of new and challenging work with the more familiar.
The Festival provides platforms from which artists, young people and the wider community can develop their artistic output and interest and we will continue to do this throughout the year.
As artists are confirmed we will be announcing them through the website and social media so watch this space or if you want to come in and have a chat about the programme then visit the Harwich Box Office in Harwich Library
Looking forward to seeing you at HF16.
