Headway Arts this summer worked with Blyth Town Council to bring back the Blyth Community Carnival. Click here to see the poster!

Headway Arts aimed to involve local people and community groups in bringing back the Blyth Carnival, drawing inspiration from the old time carnivals, circus and vintage entertainments from Blyth’s unique history.

On 26 August 2017 there was a Community Carnival Parade to Blyth Market Place which kicked off an afternoon programme of performance on the community stage and around the market place. Blyth hosted the very best of dance, music, circus and street theatre from an array of regional artists. There was an international market and the afternoon was finished with rock-a-billy and lindy hop dancing with Anth Purdy.

People of Blyth this was your event and without your help it never would’ve happened!
