Feva is Knaresborough’s annual Festival of Entertainment and Visual Arts. Every summer, for ten days a year, the town stages a wonderful array of shows and events. The 2017 festival runs from 11th to 20th August. You will find something going on in every corner of the town from street theatre and open air concerts, to live music and the art trail.
Check out the feva themed pink shop windows and be sure to visit
the Market Place every day to see magicians, punch and judy, street theatre, morris dancers, town criers and all manner of fun and free entertainment. Our street entertainment is sponsored by Knaresborough Town Council.
We have a full range of events from music to street entertainment, spoken word and family activities, theatre and dance, magic and events.
Henshaws Arts and Crafts Centre has an Urban Beach and have events going on every day. Brilliant for the family. Take your sun cream, but go even if you need a brolly. There is always loads going on and a bit of rain never stopped play.
