What's On - 2017

2017 - A Year of Firsts?

Welcome to a new year of First Art. For those of you who don’t know us, we’re a Creative People and Places project (funded by Arts Council England), and we’re here to bring great art experiences to Ashfield, Bolsover, Mansfield and North-East Derbyshire.

We’ve got a 2017 programme packed full of activities and exhibitions, events and opportunities that shine a light on our area through the ages. From Getting Creative in January to our See through the Summer Season, could this be the year that you have your First experience of something new?

Exhibition of local stories and photographs.
New theatre piece on the life of Bess of Hardwick - written by Kevin Fegan. Commissioned by First Art.
Live webstream of one of the shining lights of our area - the Bolsover Festival of Brass - one of the biggest brass showcases in the country,
Exhibitions of The People's Poetry - with large-scale illustrated windows, newspaper coverage and digital galleries.

Please help us spread the word - by following us on Twitter, liking us on Facebook, sharing our posts and being part of the conversation. You can also sign up for our monthly newsletter – just head over to the website and you’ll receive all the latest from us.
