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 support and 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 during a fortnight in June - 201710th to 25th JUNE. 

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

Stay in the loop by following us on fb.jpgFacebook and twitter-logo_60.jpgTwitter and subscribe to our mailing list for regular updates. We promise never to misuse your contact details.

When you buy tickets online you will not be sent an "e-ticket" but given a long reference number. We do not need this number! All we need from you on the door is your name and postcode - we can then tick you off our list.
TIMES - the WeGotTickets site requires a door time not a start time, which can lead to confusion. Please check THIS SITE for actual start times.

Booking fee : the company We Got Tickets charges a fee of 10%. This goes to them, not us. But in line with other online booking fees these days it does not seem an unreasonable charge and is a convenient way to book.
