If you want to get involved in Prestwich Arts Festival, you're in the right place! If you've an idea for an event, want to put on a Pocket Project, or are interested in volunteering, we'd love to hear from you.
In 2021 we launched PAF pocket projects - a series of smaller scale creative events or activities that ran alongside our main festival programme. They included Jill Murphy's painting exhibition at The Crooked Man and Kneehigh concert for under 5s.
We're delighted to run Pocket Projects again this year and are looking for individuals or organisations with great ideas that just need a bit of support to bring to life.
Applications for 2023 are now closed. Thanks for your submissions and interest.
If you're a local professional artist, creative or business with a proposal for our main festival programme, please email PAF.firstname.lastname@example.org and our programming team will be in touch.
We're also always looking for new volunteers to join our fantastic team. If you're interested in general volunteering and could be the friendly face of the festival, please contact us at
