As a group of volunteers we came together in late 2017 to organise a week long arts festival for the Penistone area...Penistone Arts Week was born!
We focus on arranging high quality, accessible, events which will appeal to local people and visitors. We run on a volunteer, not-for-profit model, that supports local businesses and venues to attract new customers, therefore supporting our local economy.
We delivered our first festival in March 2018 with Willy Russell headlining a packed week of activities. We were delighted to be supported by the Penistone Ward Alliance with £700 for our printing and publicity material but also recognised that this didn't reach as many people as we hoped.
So in response to community feedback we're now looking to launch Penistone Arts Week 2019 with a big push on publicity. To do this we need your support! Please donate to our Crowdfunder campaign and help promote the Penistone area, our businesses, attractions and community!
We are a group of volunteers and Penistone Arts Week as a constituted group receives no profit from our activities.
