Heathland Festival

Festival Information/Programme

Heathland Festival

‘A children’s festival of ideas’

July 26th – September 1st
Kings Heath, Balsall Heath and Druids Heath community libraries

Heathland Festival is an innovative programme of art activities, literature, music and artworks for children and their families. The ‘Heath’ libraries are geographically located on what was once ancient heathland, and the festival draws parallels between ancient common land and the ethos of public libraries. Based around five key themes (environment, equality, courage, migration and protest), the five-week programme will make complex ideas around sharing and public space accessible to children (and, of course, all children will be interested in sharing…).
