What's Next

Arts in the Valley will present an all-female line up in the Concert Series on 25th and 26th June 2016.

More than one guest commented on the lack of female representation among the artists at our May 2015 festival. Sadly they were right and we had only one female performer on stage. We will compensate at our upcoming concerts in 2016 with an all-female line up.
