First Art at Active Ashfield 2017

June & July 2017

As part of our ongoing relationship with Active Ashfield, we are bringing arts and colour to their summer events. Active Ashfield is a local network that brings sports and physical activities to people of all ages and abilities. It’s all part of encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

First Art at the Armed Forces Day ‘Forties to Noughties’, Kirkby-in-Ashfield Town Centre Plaza

Saturday, 24th June, FREE

We’re getting nostalgic to mark ‘Forties to Noughties’ with Ashfield District Council. We’ll be bringing creative talent to help celebrate music and dance through the years with a stunning piece of visual arts that you can help make.

The day will also include the ever-popular Active Ashfield Factor, and brass performances.

First Art at Active Ashfield Games Day – Sutton Lawn Pleasure Grounds, Sutton-in-Ashfield

HEADLINE ACT ANNOUNCED - We have invited Wired Aerial Theatre to bring their spectacular new show To Me, To You to the Active Ashfield Games Finals Day!

We’re getting all active again at Active Ashfield Games Day, and we’re asking you to join us for a wheely good time (sorry!) As part of Active Ashfield we’re celebrating two hundred years of the bicycle (who knew?) with a Bicycle Ballet, fusing art and sports.
