Seven Bridges

One of the many things that is really exciting about this year's Shipley Street Arts Festival is the fact that we've been able to link with lots of really great companies and organisations. Not only are we commissioning and presenting the opening shows of  2Faced Dance's international tour of KAPOW!, and working closely with local businesses like Fox and the Magpie, Tulip Toppers, we're also linking with some other great festivals in Yorkshire, like Saltaire Festival and Leeds Waterfront Festival.

We're proud to announce that Seven Bridges is providing a fantastic link between Shipley Street Arts Festival and Leeds Waterfront Festival - bringing together the watery themes of both events (our theme this year is Rivers and Canals).

This promenading performance of an interactive storytelling tour is being featured at both festivals - and is presented by Multi-Story Water.

We'll see you there!

KAPOW! 2Faced Dance's Show - Commissioned by Shipley Street Arts Festival & Saltaire Festival


We promised that this year Shipley Street Arts Festival would be bigger and better - and we weren't kidding! We love these super images of 2Faced Dance's spectacular show KAPOW! - a hilarious, action-packed mixture of dance and superpowers, not to be missed!

The show is set to go on an international tour, but first they're showcasing their performances in Shipley and Saltaire. These opening shows have been specially commissioned by Shipley Street Arts Festival and Saltaire Festival - we're very excited to have them on board!

Fabulous prizes to be won at the Cycling Competition!

Shipley Street Arts Festival isn't just about bringing the arts to the local area ... it's also about engaging with as many members of the local community as we can - including budding cyclists!

In partnership with local business Workouts Gym Shipley Street Arts Festival is offering a chance to win some great prizes at the Cycling Competition, running (or should that be cycling?) all through the festival!

Don't worry, you don't have to have won the Tour de Yorkshire! Everyone's welcome to join in and have fun, while also getting fit. There's prizes for more than just winning the race, so come on down to this friendly, community-minded gym and have a go!

Have you seen the festival programme yet?

It's here!

Our brand new, shiny festival programme is back from the printers and ready to hit the streets of Shipley! We're very proud of this year's programme - all the hard work to bring you a fantastic festival is beginning to pay off!

So take a look inside ...

We're sending out the programmes to local schools and businesses, and throughout the festival we'll have a stall where you're more than welcome to pick up a programme.

Remember, not only does it tell you about all the amazing things going on across the three days, the programme also acts as a voucher for 15% off food and drinks at ibis Hotel's restaurant when you bring it along! (Offer only valid within the times of the event, 10am - 5pm for the three days of the festival: 26th, 27th, 28th June - terms and conditions do apply, please see the programme for further details).

Can't wait to see you there!

Just some of the fun to come ...

Commissioned by the Shipley Street Arts Festival and Saltaire Festival
