Performance Programme

This year Wirksworth Festival is going online! You’ll find it all in the ‘Videos’ section of our Facebook page!

The centrepiece of this year’s Festival is a newly commissioned film co-created by 30 artists in lockdown.

Our Online Festival also features a programme of handpicked events that celebrate our local performing arts community, some firm Festival favourites, plus a series of talks and interviews exploring contemporary art, how the town has responded creatively to the lockdown and a look at some past Festival highlights.
