About us

KAF began its life in 2003 with a small grant from the Arts Council and an audience of just 2000 people.  hmmm

Since then it has become the flagship project of Wyre Forest District Council's Arts and Play Development portfolio.  KAF now works with a huge range of partners, commissions new work and reaches audiences of over 100,000 people. 

KAF relies almost entirely on external funding; if you would like to help by supporting the event you can contribute through the link on our contacts page or contact us directly by email.

The ideas are flowing for an exciting line up for this year's event including street theatre, live events, community workshops, film screenings, exhibitions and much more! Look out too for the very popular Kidderminster Fringe Festival.

Last year's theme was 'Patterns'.

This was a homage to the rich textile heritage of Kidderminster, and coincided with the centenary of world-reknowned textile designer Lucienne Day, whose life and career is explored in the current exhibition at Kidderminster's Museum of Carpet.
