Funding announced for town centre festival

A two-day Luton town centre festival is set to be even bigger and better thanks to nearly £15,000 of Arts Council Funding.

Celebrate Luton Street Fest, which is coming to Luton town centre this August for the very first time, has been funded by the BID and is two days packed with drummers, parades, comedy, music, street circus, interactive street games, dance, a projection, rap, workshop and much more.

Thanks to the additional funding the opening event on the Friday will now be a comic, musical promenade performance by French outdoor arts company Vernisseurs, The funding has also meant the addition of an ‘Applause Programme’, made up of four artists.
