The Worcester Festival – Events, Activities & Fun for Everyone held in Worcester
The overall vision for the Worcester Festival remains the same each year, and our Mission Statement has remained virtually unchanged since the Festival was first launched over a decade ago. Here it is:
“The Worcester Festival is not a music festival, nor indeed an arts festival, but just … a festival. The Festival is for the people of Worcester, Worcestershire and the surrounds. It is a series of partnerships between large cross-sections of the community, an umbrella for a huge range of activities, many of them free. It is a coming together of people of all ages, creeds and race. It is an opportunity to stage an event, or to attend a large selection of both professional and community events. It is a celebration of life and of Worcester, Worcestershire and its people”.
The Worcester Festival is made up of events and activities that are programmed by Worcester Festival, plus events organised by other individuals and organisations, which are registered with the Festival.
The Festival runs over three weekends in August, (and throughout the two weeks in between), and although it starts on a different date each year it always ends on the August Bank Holiday Monday.
Since the first Worcester Festival back in 2003, the Festival has grown year on year, in terms of the number of events, the number of venues involved and the number of people enjoying those events.
