During October 2016 the Wirral Arts Festival showcased musicians, actors, artists and poets. There were craft events, a fashion show and an arts trail. There was a day dedicated to science and for the first time an engineering day and an astronomy evening.
Our team is small in number but packed with drive and ambition to make the Wirral Arts Festival something to be remembered by participants and audience alike.
