Its provided music, dance, drama and stacks of other entertainment for families in the borough of Hounslow for the past two decades.
Creative pupils from Victoria Junior School in Feltham are behind the wonderful illustrations for this year’s festival brochure, and the event has been organised by the Feltham Arts Association team Ruth Wood and Charlotte Skinner, supported by The Centre in Feltham and Hounslow council.
The festival headliner this year will once again be the action-packed community funday on June 1 featuring a carnival workshop, learning to dance with Anna King, performances from the Tiger Boat Theatre, a musical from Terri Ann-Creaser’s Tale Be Told Theatre group, and a showstopping performance from the Alluminae Dance Company as well as a comedy juggling show and more.
Other highlights in the festival calendar include aspiring talented local artists competing for £500 in Hounslow Has Talent on June 4 and new play The Diary of a Hounslow Girl will be on at Hounslow Arts Centre on May 28.
There will be something for people of all ages with arts and crafts for children from decorating sunglasses to making a bird box, a games club, and storytime sessions.
For adults there are photography and watercolour painting exhibits, history talks, an artist club, a knit and natter group, book club or a chance to join Hounslow community brass band.
Ruth Wood Feltham Arts Festival Director said: “We have worked in cooperation with many talented local groups and organisations to select and design activities and projects for people of all ages to enjoy.
“We are delighted to welcome you all to join us in what I am sure is going to be the most spectacular festival yet.”
Last year Feltham Arts, through Feltham Festival , benefited more than 5,000 people of all ages with a mix of educational and cultural activities.
