Hilton Arts Festival Virtual Celebration of the Arts

11 - 13 September would have been the 28th Festival weekend, but this is not to be.
  Here is a selection of events and shows for you to watch. Some are free, others are ticketed. Please note that the ticketed shows generate income for the individual productions, not for the Festival. If you would like to donate to the sustainability of the Festival please click the donate button below. This content will remain available to the public for as long as there is interest. Not just a festival weekend this year!

Artists and crafters who have already applied will receive an email with instructions to have the application fee refunded.
