Kidderminster Arts Festival began life in 2003 with a small grant from the Arts Council and an audience of just 2000 people. Since then it has become the flagship project of Wyre Forest District Council Arts and Play Development Team's portfolio. KAF now works with a huge range of partners, commissions new work and reaches over 100,000 people.
The event is held in the last two weeks of August in and around Kidderminster town centre in local venues and on the streets.
KAF offers a diverse cultural experience to all ages and interests, including a programme of performance workshops, shows, street arts and exhibitions. We also work closely with Kidderminster Creatives a group of independent artists who use the event as a platform to present new and established work to local audiences.
