Kensington + Chelsea Art Week Festival | 21 June – 31 August | FREE.



Kensington + Chelsea Art Week is expanding throughout the summer season with a festival that elevates the magic and shared experiences of public art and live performance.


The diverse programme includes local, national and international artists, communities, organisations and a wealth of talent behind the scenes whose careers have been on hold over the past year. The festival is inspired by the rich heritage, creativity, culture and innovation in Kensington and Chelsea.​


Fun, inspirational, surprising and extraordinary experiences will be safe and accessible across Kensington and Chelsea’s iconic venues and public spaces, with online and interactive ways to get involved and enjoy the festival.


Re-imagining creativity and culture for everyone, public art and curated tours, ballet and street art, broken beats and orchestras, circus arts and gaming culture, exhibitions and workshops, will all feature in well-known and unexpected places. The festival mix spans visual art, a diverse Public Art Trail, design, theatre, dance, music, family shows, cabaret, comedy, spoken word and street food, plus creative experiments and seeing how artists bring new ideas to life.


Co-creation, sharing ideas and stories will feed into creating extraordinary experiences in extraordinary times. Local people, artists, audiences, staff and volunteers will reflect the diversity of the global borough and its global reach.
