Darlington Arts Festival AGM
7:30 pm Monday 15 March 2021 at the Darlington Lesser Hall on Owen Road
And so it begins. Preparation for the 2021 Darlington Arts Festival starts now!
Come along to the DAF AGM on Monday 15 March at 7:30pm and find out how you can help to make the event happen as if by magic.
We are always lookin for volunteers to offer a few hours of help through the year and on the weekend of the festival. We are especially interested in attracting new committee members that are willing to give some blood, sweat and tears for the reward of a slice of pizza, a special Committee member tee-shirt and a camaraderie that will heal a worn out soul.
If you are new to Darlington, what is it all about?
The festival is a weekend filled with music and art, artisan stalls, food trucks, kids workshops and more! It runs 10am to 5pm Saturday and 10 am to 4pm Sunday (with the wine tent going all day and into the evening on both days)
in 2020 we held an an Art Introspective. During these Covid-times some thoughtful reflection seemed right. We felt it was important to support our local and longstanding artists by inviting them to exhibit some of their work. There were no prizes last year, just great art, available for purchase or to just enjoy seeing. Your favorites were there, Gus Skene, Vince Austin, Ric Burkitt, Amanda Smith, Noreen Burrow, Jo Meredith, Alastair Taylor, Una Bell, Neil Elliot and so many more!
The Early Years
We also had on display some works by some of the early festival greats – including Robert Juniper in our Early Years Exhibition in the Lesser Hall.
The DaSRA wine tent will be there all day and late into the evening on Saturday, and will run through to Sunday evening at 8pm
Have-a-Go – Junior to young adult workshops are back on
2020 Open Art – Introspective
2020 Performing Arts

Walk, drive or take the bus – this is where you will find us!
The Wall – Paint-a- Brick
It looks so good! Over the course of a weekend, a plain brick wall was transformed into a work of art, by YOU the festival visitors. We have a time lapse video of the event.
A big thank you to our Sponsors and Donors. We rely on your generosity to make this festival happen. Thank you too, to all of the volunteers that are coming to help us this year.
And of course thank you to our Committee members for the many hours of work that each and everyone of you put in. We could not do it without you! I know that you will agree that being on the committee is rewarding.
