The annual Barton Arts Festival offers a professional programme of cultural activities and participatory events for local people.
With an eclectic kaleidoscope of performers, events and entertainment representing a broad spectrum of what is loosely referred to as “the arts”, the festival provides activities and performances for adults and children alike. In addition to providing a platform for local talent, the festival also celebrates the arts from further afield, welcoming national and international music and theatre.
From its origins in 1998, Barton Arts Festival has brought a range of famous names to the town, including The Blackdyke Mills Band, Humphrey Littleton, Clare Teal, London Community Gospel Choir, Michael McIntyre, Dara O’Briain, Alan Carr and many, many more.
Traditionally, Barton Arts Festival is celebrated as near as possible to St Peter’s Day on June 29.
Hidden History tells of Barton upon Humber's fascinating history through a collection of media including original and authentic photographs, video clips, narration and text.
