Welcome to Market Bosworth Festival: Celebrating the Arts.

including: Arts & Crafts || Music || Drama & Literature || Film || Family Events


Market Bosworth Festival is a registered charity run by a dedicated group of local people who love the Arts. We put on a series of events every year in and around Market Bosworth,  Leicestershire to support and celebrate the Arts in a variety of forms - music of all genres, film, theatre, literature, lectures, the visual arts and crafts, and anything else that we think might be of interest! 

Many of the events take place during a fortnight in June - our next festival is 10th to 25th JUNE 2017

Other events like films, music and drama are organised throughout the year and you will find all these on the  Events & Calendar.

TICKETS FOR SALE ONLINE from MARCH 28th & shortly after that in outlets
When you buy tickets online you will not be sent an "e-ticket" but a long reference number. We do not need this number! All we need from you on the door is your name and postcode - we can then tick you off our list.

Booking fee : the company We Got Tickets charges a fee of 10%. This goes to them, not us. But in line with other online booking fees these days it does not seem an unreasonable charge and is a convenient way to book. 

We are inviting entries for the OPEN ART EXHIBITION June 10-11th at The Dixie Grammar School.
