Shipley Streets Arts Festival - 26th - 28th June

It's back ... we're proud to announce we're hosting the second year of the SHIPLEY STREET ARTS FESTIVAL. 

This year it's bigger and better (it has a giant whale, courtesy of nationally-acclaimed Circo Rum Ba Ba, after all) and we want everybody to get involved. 

With a theme of 'Rivers and Canals' there are lots of projects in which to get involved. We've even joined up with The Saltaire Festival this year to commission a very special performance by 2Faced Dance’s new production, the superhero-themed action-dance spectacular KAPOW! which will be on show at Shipley Street Arts Festival and then again at Saltaire Festival for its thrilling first performances. Then the team are set to take the production on an international tour - but first stop is Shipley, and it's not to be missed. 

You can find out more on the festival's official website:

In the meantime, we'll be updating our Facebook, Twitter and blog, so keep an eye out for details of amazing acts, fantastic workshops and fabulous artworks, all coming to Shipley this June!

The Q20 Events Blog returns!

We're back!

We've been busy as beavers in the office this spring, and we're very pleased to tell you that we've got some exciting updates on the amazing events we're involved in on the way.

Make sure you keep a look out for all the news, either on our blog, our Facebook page, our Twitter account, or even our brand new website, coming soon ...
