This is a free opportunity set up specifically for Darlington Arts Festival 2019 for local individuals or organisations to publicise their arts/culture groups, promote forthcoming events and attract new members.

The Victorian Market Hall has kindly provided a space for arts organisations to showcase their talents. It’s free for people to perform in the ‘Spotlight on…’ performance space (see photo), booking required via DfC, and it’s free for members of the public to watch/listen.

The format is open to all local arts organisations, music groups, performers, choirs etc, as a format where they can publicise themselves, their events, and help attract new members to their groups.

This has been organised in response to feedback from DfC members about what would help them raise their public profiles, attract new members, and highlight the variety of arts activities available in the town.
