2019 has rolled over to give way to not just a new year, but to a whole new decade.
As we contemplate what the future has in store for us and the rest of the world, there is at least one constant the people of Leek and the Staffordshire Moorlands can put their faith in… there’s always the 2020 Leek Arts Festival to look forward to.
Months of planning by the festival fools (or volunteers as we like to call them) is beginning to bear fruit, with a number of big names – including the brilliant Eddi Reader (ex Fairground Attraction), star of stand-up Simon Evans, Ian ‘The Bard of Yorkshire’ McMillan and surreal comedian Boothby Grafoe – already in the line-up.
You’ll find all you need to know about dates and tickets on the website. Please keep coming back as new events will be added as they are confirmed.
The 2020 Leek Arts Festival runs from the end of April to the middle of June and with contributions from local groups and individuals we’re expecting the programme to feature between 30 and 40 events this year.
If you’re planning an event you’d like to see in the LAF programme, please ensure all the information gets to our admin guru Phil Edmeades (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Saturday February 15 2020 at the very latest.
