Welcome to PAW

We would like to wish all our visitors and supporters a happy new year for 2021.  We are looking forward to bringing you as much of a ‘live’ PAW Festival as possible!  The dates for your diary are May 29 – June 13th.

In the meantime we hope you enjoy browsing through our Artists. Some of the artists are regular exhibitors and some are new to PAW, have a look at what they have been creating, and follow up on their websites if you’d like to see even more of their work.

For some inspirational music please explore the series of virtual concerts that we and the musicians created for you on this website – click here to go to Virtual Events. These concerts reflect what would have been performed during the 2020 Festival and what you can look forward to in our events programme in 2021.  In some cases we have included art works by our artists to enliven the music sequences.

Keep an eye on our PAW Facebook and keep up to date on our artists, events and PAW news.

The PAW Festival team, including all our volunteers, and our performers and artists are looking forward to PAW 2021 – we very much hope we can bring you a live Festival,  and look forward to seeing you all again. We’ve missed you!

Take care everyone and please keep in touch.

Our Theme Competition Gallery:

Every year we invite PAW artists to enter their work into a theme competition – for the selection of three winning images for the front of our Festival Brochure, Events Programme and posters. The theme for 2020 was ‘Changing Seasons’, which has morphed very naturally into ‘Renewal’ for PAW 2021!  We hope you enjoy some of the entries shown here.
