This multi-cultural, award-winning event, brings together communities from across the city and wider, transforming the area into one of the world’s largest outdoor art galleries, and what’s more it’s FREE!

They have invited over 120 street artists to paint, draw and exhibit their work on as many walls and other canvases as they can find! The event will be a platform for promoting emerging talent alongside more established artists.

An event for all the family, the festival will be spread over 15 venues, with ten music stages, a large range of exciting performances and participatory activities, huge market hall and a range of tasty street food. The festival will reflect the vibrancy of its people and its places, bringing together different communities, family and friends of all ages to enjoy the electric atmosphere that is City of Colours!
