What’s on Festivals Brand new festivals, delivered by Severn Arts, are taking place in Worcester, showcasing national and international creative talent and supporting local emerging work. The first of the festivals, Light Night Worcester, took place across the city centre on the evening of Thursday 16 January 2020. There are more festivals to come, each with the same high-quality work and opportunities but completely different from each other. There will be something for everyone! Find out more on the Festivals website. The festivals programme is part of The Arches - Worcester project. Severn Arts is a principle partner in this project and is the lead organisation for the Festivals. The Arches-Worcester project is supported by the Department of Culture Media and Sports’ Cultural Development Fund, administered by Arts Council England.
