All the Fun Things.
Welcome to the Harwich Festival.
‘Who are you?’ ‘The Harwich Festival.’ ‘Oh, you’re the lot who do all the fun things in the
town!’ What an accolade!
This is what we are about.
We showcase our local talent in visual arts and crafts through our 20 20 exhibition, Window Art
Competition, Windows onto Art, Textile Art and Fishy Business; in film through Harwich Shorts;
in the performing arts through our Up to 20 Festival at the Bandstand and our Primary School Concert. We attract the very best creative and performing artists through exhibitions, spoken word, visual art, dance and a wide range of music.
There will be something for everyone and lots you have not seen or heard before.
Come along, get involved and be entertained.
