Welcome to Arts for the Heart of England, an organisation founded on a passionate belief that the arts nourish the soul, are good for our well-being and help us grow as people. Our inaugural festival in June 2019 showed us that there is a hunger for cultural activity and a clear eagerness to experience greater access to the arts in the East Midlands. We hope that our Summer Festival will become an annual event, providing our local community with some of the finest artists in some of the most stunning venues in the heart of England. We also aim to expand our content to include jazz, children’s events and the visual arts. Do sign up to our mailing list, if you are keen to receive updates on our work. 

Our Summer Festival will take place from 8th - 10th July 2022. To see the full list of events, please click here.
