Get Involved

Your Festival

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 interested in volunteering, we'd love to hear from you. 

Pocket projects

Last year 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 2022 are now closed - thanks to everyone for their interest.

Event proposals

If you're a local professional artist, creative or business with a proposal for our main festival programme, please email 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

Thanks for your interest in working with us! We'll get back to you soon.
