Dancing in the street

SSP-Dance-CrewOrganisers of a popular festival in Stafford are calling on dancers, musicians, poets and other artists to get in touch with them.

Performers will be given the chance to entertain thousands of people at the town’s fourth annual Stafford Arts Festival.

Artists from around the globe are expected to be involved in the showcase which takes place in Stafford’s Market Square and venues around the town in September.

Stafford Town Centre Partnership and the borough council are encouraging people to sign up to showcase their work alongside other artists and performers.

Chris Lewis, Chairman for the Partnership said:

“Our annual arts festival has become a popular feature in the Stafford events calendar. It not only encourages new and returning visitors to our area, it also brings life and vibrancy to the town centre making it a hive of activity with something for everyone to enjoy”.

The closing date for applications is Monday 14 April with the festival taking place on Saturday 6 September.
