About the festival

The Loughborough University Arts Festival returns for its second year, celebrating the creative arts here at Loughborough.

At the heart of the festival is the opportunity to enjoy the work of our talented students. This is showcased in the Arts Degree Show and final-year Drama students’ performance of Eugène Ionesco’s Rhinocéros. The Arts Degree Show features the work of our final-year Fine Art, Graphic Communication and Illustration and Textiles students as well as an exhibition by our Foundation Art and Degree students.

Alongside the students’ work, is a programme of events for students, staff and members of the public to enjoy, many of which are FREE to attend.

The festival will close with a one day symposium on Art Education. Join invited academics and practitioners to celebrate and reflect on the histories of Art Education and explore how they can be re-imagined in the current climate.

Background
