Categories // Events at Bartons

Proposals sought from artists and performers for a major Nottingham Art Festival.

comwhiteFollowing on from the success of last years multi-arts Carnival of Monsters festival 2011 in Nottingham, Bartons ( have kindly offered to host the festival again this year. We are currently putting together what will be a bigger and better festival combining Art, Music and Performance in the fantastic Bartons buildings.

We are running the festival around the same dates as last year (starting on the Oct 13th for 2 weeks). We already have support from the Beeston Bid and Broxtowe Councils, been offered Radio air play and promotion in the press, TV and the Oxjam Festival among many others. Bartons have also been chosen as a venue for the Cultural Olympiad this year.

We are currently seeking ambitious proposals from artists working in the East Midlands or further afield, either site specific or existing pieces. The Festival is a unique opportunity to present large-scale sculpture, painting, live art, photography, installations, film, video, dance and music in a truly unique venue.

Should you wish to visit the venue prior to submitting a proposal please get in touch and we will try to accommodate small groups in advance of the submissions deadline.
