Welcome to Harwich Festival 2017
This year we celebrate our local talent and the unique beauty of our landscape, history and heritage while still attracting the very best performances and exhibitions in spoken word, visual art, dance and a wide range of music.
We also showcase the outcomes from our wider community activities such as Write Away, Stories, Poems and Reminiscence, 20 by 20 Project, Harwich Shorts, Up To 20 and Urban Sewing Project which demonstrates that the Harwich Festival now provides platforms from which artists, young people and the wider community can develop their artistic output and interest.
During the 11 days of the Festival there will be something for everyone and lots you have not seen before. Come along, get involved and be entertained.

We have been lucky to have applications from across different genres of music, different forms of dance and fitness and other performers such as poets and fire jugglers! Our participants come from the immediate area of Harwich and across the county.
Here’s the lineup, which is FREE to attend. Why not bring along a picnic and enjoy the entertainment?
If you are planning to attend on Thurs 29th June, please take note that the University of Essex Fire Jugglers will be performing with real fire and as such, children should be made aware of the dangers involved and kept close to their adults.
If you would like to take part but have not yet applied, please make yourself known to the MC at one of the performances, who will be pleased to add you to the line-up in the OPEN MIC slot, space permitting.
