What did you think of ArtBeat 2018?


We had a great time at ArtBeat 2018 and we’ll soon have to start thinking about ArtBeat 2019, which is our 5th birthday.

To help us create the best ArtBeat yet we need your feedback about ArtBeat 2018. What did we do well, what could we improve and what sort of events would you like to see next year? It doesn’t matter if you didn’t attend any ArtBeat events, you can still help with your answers.

Just fill in our quick survey here 

And if you’d like to put on your own event next year, or help out in organising the festival, in anyway, then come along to our Public meeting on:

Monday 17th September, 6.30pm, at the QuakerMeeting House, small meeting room on Queens road.

No experience needed just enthusiasm and ideas.

If you can’t attend the meeting email us at info@clarendonpark.net for more information.

The ArtBeat team is delighted to announce that ArtBeat Community Arts Festival will be back on the streets of Clarendon Park again this summer.

ArtBeat 2016 will run from Friday 17 June – Monday 27 June. Mark your diary for another fab festival packed with music, storytelling, dance, film and more.

ArtBeat 2016 Programme

Following the success of the 2014 and 2015 ArtBeat festivals, this will be our third year celebrating local talent in the Clarendon Park area.

This year’s volunteer organisers are beavering away planning a whole host of events for ArtBeat 2016. You’ll recognise some old favourites as well as some very exciting new talent this year.

We are especially excited to introduce a brand new film strand to the events on offer. Stay tuned and check the Programme section of the site for more news as the events schedule starts to take shape.

ArtBeat Volunteers Needed

If you love the arts and have some time to spare, then get involved! ArtBeat can’t happen without the generous efforts of volunteers. We need help with organising events, delivering leaflets, not to mention the all-important artists and performers.

If you can help in any way, please contact info@clarendonpark.net, we’d love to hear from you.

ArtBeat 2016 Sponsorship

Each year the festival relies on generous sponsorship received from local businesses and organisations. Thanks once again to all who helped the 2015 festival happen.

If you are interested in sponsoring ArtBeat this year, please contact sponsorship@clarendonpark.net to discuss how you can be a part of the 2016 festival.

Making ArtBeat 2015

We would like to thank the many volunteers and sponsors who made the festival a reality this year.

Huge thanks to the local authority, Leicester City Council. The council made grants available to support the running costs of the festival. The council community grants went towards activities such as publicity and promotion.

We also received generous donations from commercial sponsors. The principal sponsor for ArtBeat 2015 was ZigZag Photography in Portland Road. Thank you ZigZag!

The festival also received donations from 25 local retailers, in particular, the retail outlets in Queens Road and Clarendon Park Road. Donations come in the form of cash or in-kind contributions.

Until next time…

Stay tuned for more of what’s coming next for ArtBeat and how you can get involved. Meanwhile, reminisce by reading the 2015 ArtBeat blog and enjoying this clip of the Lonesome Pines.
