THE FIVE LAMPS ARTS FESTIVAL
The annual festival contributes to the development and perception of the area as a positive and creative place in which to live and work.
This has knock-on benefits for the community and local economy. The festival provides an opportunity for local artists to develop and showcase their work, in many cases this has been a stepping-stone to further success.
This in turn provides a vision of alternative opportunities for young people in the area, who are also supported by the organisation through programmes and workshops with professional artists, choreographers and designers. Our walking tour guides, and videos have also helped to influence the perception of the area as one rich in culture and history.
