The Rising was a free seven-day cultural festival dedicated to tattooing, fashion and gaming, bringing new opportunities for young adults to explore art and culture in unexpected ways.

The festival was co-created with The Rising Voice, a group of local young adults whose interests and experiences of living in Worcester has helped shape the direction of the festival.

From a tattoo exhibition to a fashion show, from panel discussions to VR experiences, The Rising contained a unique mix of events, taking place in locations across Worcester City Centre from 10 - 16 October 2022.
