Not long now until Darlington Art Festival 2022 comes to Darlington Town Centre, there will be a marquee in the Market Square sharing fantastic creative work with free entry, and opportunities to enjoy exhibitions and events in various Town Centre locations, including The Friends Meeting House on Skinnergate. The Darlington Arts Festival programme includes events, exhibitions, performances, readings, talks and chances to explore different arts activity.

Darlington Society of Arts was formed in 2022 and are celebrating their centenary this year with some of their members work on display in The Art Shop Darlington’s window during Darlington Arts Festival, wand some of their members are planning to paint in the Market Square on Saturday 21 May during the Arts Festival, which provides another great reason to visit Darlington this weekend.
