6 August to 18 August 2012
Sandwell Arts Festival returns this summer with an exciting new development and a new slot in the calendar. The streets of Sandwell will come alive with walkabout performance, music and circus as well as a full programme of community based arts events and activities, showcasing some of Sandwell’s most creative people and organisations, with spoken word, dance, exhibitions, theatre and music.
The highlight of this year’s festival will be a spectacular community procession through West Bromwich to The Public on Saturday August 18th, telling the tale of the Sandwell Giant. Flags, banners and giant structures will be made in participatory workshops and carried along the procession route – all workshops are free and open to all. Knitters across the borough are being mobilised to create a multi coloured outfit for the giant.
With over 50 events, most of them free, there’s lots for everyone.
