Kenilworth Arts Festival is a week-long gathering of writers, musicians and other creative artists. It is at once a series of unique events and collectively an extraordinary experience.

“Run by people with a conscious desire to celebrate the writing, music, poetry and art they actually love, Kenilworth Arts is a wonderful home-grown festival with heart.” – Rob Cowen (journalist and author)

Kenilworth Arts Festival is an annual, week-long celebration of the creative arts that weaves throughout the leafy setting of historic Kenilworth. Our aim is to bring together some of the finest contemporary music, literature and art from across the country, as well as to offer a platform for local talent. With a programme of inspiring and engaging events that will exhibit the current creative landscape at its very best, we hope to inspire people of all ages to try new things, hone their skills and indulge their passions.

We do not confine ourselves to any particular genre or style, rather we strive to reflect exciting developments across the broadest spectrum of culture to offer a celebration of art, innovation and community.  For one week, Kenilworth is transformed into a hive of creative exploration.

Our festival programme offers three interconnected strands, each designed to engage, challenge and entertain. Together, they provide a week-long immersive experience.

  • Headline events feature a varied range of nationally and internationally renowned and respected musicians, writers and artists, united by their exceptional output.
  • Fringe events, exhibitions and workshops offer a platform for local talent, showcase new work and, like all the festival’s events, aim to engage the imagination of festival goers.
  • Fiesta is a free, open-air extravaganza held in the beautiful surroundings of Abbey Fields. This event features live music, theatre, local arts & crafts and a host of interactive activities for all age groups.

Every day

Compton Verney’s summer exhibition will take you on a fascinating and stimulating journey that looks at the ways in which our visual perceptions have been explored by artists.

From the Impressionists onwards, artists have been inspired by the colour theories of scientific thinkers such as Michel Eugène Chevreul. The most famous examples are the pointillist works of Georges Seurat and his associates, in which colours other than those actually painted on the canvas are generated in the eye of the beholder through the application of small dots of primary colour.

During the 20th century, and culminating in the famous Op art movement of the 1960 onwards, the scientific and philosophical interest in perception extended into ways of communicating movement via static art forms. Early explorations of this can be seen in work by artists such as Helen Saunders, M.C. Escher and Josef Albers using tessellation, pattern, line, mathematics and colour, and sometimes optical trickery, to convey the sensation of movement.

This fascination with the optical in art remains strong amongst artists and makers today and this wide-ranging show features of the works of artists working since the 1960s, such as Jim Lambie, Christiane Baumgartner, Daniel Buren, Liz West and Lothar Götz. Their work is shown alongside later works of those who became stars of the ‘Op art’ movement in the 1960s and who continued to develop and explore new possibilities:  Bridget Riley, Victor Vasarely, Jesus Rafael Soto, Julio Le Parc, Peter Sedgley, Jeffrey Steele and Carlos Cruz-Diez.
