Celebrate the New Forest’s landscape, culture and arts community by joining us at exciting events across the Forest!
The New Forest Arts Festival is your chance to experience a wide range of art in unusual spaces, with locations including a Roman villa, an ancient shipyard, an arboretum and a beach hut.
The Festival worked with Forest Arts Forum (FAF) who are now working towards ways in which arts organisations in the Forest can work together in the future. They have developed a new branding called Folio and are looking to improve partnership working within the creative community and apply for future grants.
The two week Festival did not take place during 2018 whilst the future direction was being discussed. However a number of activities were run by FAF members during the New Forest Show to launch Folio and promote the Festival and the Forest’s creative community.

The New Forest Arts Festival is led by the New Forest National Park Authority and local creative organisations, and is part of the Heritage Lottery Fund Our Past, Our Future landscape partnership scheme.
