The Hunstanton & District Festival of Arts sponsor a collection of events throughout the year that includes Poetry Mornings, a children’s Dance Festival. A One Act Play festival for Amateur Drama Groups, Art Shows and musical events of different kinds. There are monthly craft fairs for locally hand made goods, and a Professional Theatre Company visits at least once a season. There are also creative writing projects and projects for schools.
Recently, the HDFA has sponsored a community ceramic tile project for Hunstanton that can be seen on the promenade to the north of the Family Amusement Centre. In December there is a Festival of Christmas Trees which has proved very popular with the local community. New ideas are constantly being sought and the second “Festival Three by the Sea” event will run from May till September 2016.
The HDFA is run by a committee of local volunteers who are interested in all things artistic. They meet monthly at the Princess Theatre in Hunstanton. Each year the group receives a small grant from Kings Lynn Borough Council to distribute to local Arts Groups to promote the visual Arts of painting, sculpture and photography, and the performing arts of poetry, dance, music and Drama in Hunstanton and its surrounding areas. The committee is always keen to hear from anyone who has something to offer who would like to join in.
