Welcome to Market Bosworth Festival: Celebrating the Arts.

including: Arts & Crafts || Music || Drama & Literature || Film || Family Events


Market Bosworth Festival is a registered charity run by a dedicated group of local people who love the Arts. We put on a series of events every year in and around Market Bosworth,  Leicestershire to celebrate the Arts in a variety of forms - music of all genres, film, theatre, literature, lectures, the visual arts and crafts, and anything else that we think might be of interest! 

Many of the events take place in the Summer - this coming year Market Bosworth will be buzzing with activity between JUNE 11th and JULY 2nd 2016. Outline details are now on this site and more will be added as we go.

Other events like films, music and drama are organised throughout the year and you will find all these on the  Events & Calendar.
