Greetings from the Nelson Arts Festival team.

Plans for the 2015 Festival are well underway. We are busy finalising a very exciting line up and look forward to sharing it with you soon. There will be the usual fabulous line-up of theatre, dance, comedy, music, literary events, visual arts and the Masked Parade & Carnivale. 

The programme will be launched on Thursday 6 August, with Early Bird tickets available throughout August.

Watch this space!
