As always, the Dearne Community Arts’ Festival, an annual event championing creativity and celebrating community, was a fantastic family day out on Saturday 24 September. Since its inception in 2017, the festival has gone from strength to strength, wtih exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations and performances on stage providing a place for local residents to showcase their creative talents and for people of all ages to come together and have a go at different art forms.

Vincent the Sun Bear (the mascot for the festival) and a balloon arch were the first signs of creativity at the festival;

Inside on the High Street, there were lots of different activities to watch or have a go at, including 3D printing, glass painting, face painting, mosaic postcards, paper engineering and hot wax painting. It’s great to be able to try something new and be creative.
