Emerge Festival Cannock Chase

  • Monday 6th April 12:00pm until 5:00pm
Emerge is an arts festival model commissioned and delivered by young people across multiple sites on the same day. Emerge Festivals have taken place over the last three years and they are getting bigger and better!

Cannock Town Centre will be taken over by Emerge Festival, in partnership with Cannock Town Council's food and craft markets, plus fair ground rides! The festival is inspired by the Shakespeare’s War of the Roses and will have a medieval theme – the opening piece will be a procession of all those taking part beginning at Cannock Library and arriving at the main band stand at 12 noon.
The Festival Fun Day in Cannock Town Centre will have a range of activities such as an artisan craft fair, a food Market, fairground rides, Cannock Chase Radio, craft activities, art exhibitions and competitions plus theatrical and dance performances by young people from the Cannock Chase area. There will also be professional performances from theatre company ‘Fabularium’..... and much more! An exciting mix of theatre, dance, music, art, photography and crafts!

All the activities and performances are FREE! There will also be a £1 shuttle bus service running directly between Rugeley and Cannock to ensure the day is as accessible as possible for everyone.

Come and join us for a fun filled, family friendly afternoon in Cannock!
