Love Oswestry – winter arts and culture festival

Love Oswestry, makes a welcome return in February, 2024. Now in its third year, the festival holds an eclectic mix of events, most of which are free, closing with a lantern parade through the streets of Oswestry.

The main ‘Love Oswestry’ day is on Saturday, February 17th, 2024, however there are lots of activities in the lead-up, which is also half-term week. This year, the Love Oswestry programme is stronger than ever and gives the people of Oswestry the chance to watch or take part in a feast of cultural activities and performances at various venues across town.

Highlights include the Lantern Parade, led by local organisation Designs in Mind. People can make their own unique lantern at weekend workshops and bring their designs to the magical parade starting at Festival Square, as darkness falls over the town.

Oswestry’s iconic Llwyd Mansion will open its doors for a new oral histories project ‘The Story Shop’ which invites people to share their memories and love of the town. Hermon Arts will also host a performance of ‘A Tender Thing’, a moving twist on Romeo & Juliet by Stage Five Theatre.

For young people there are DJ workshops and a week-long drama project Oswestry Performs, with professional tutors, leading to a performance in Hermon Arts on Friday 16th Feb. There will also be storytelling sessions, drumming and block printing tote bag workshops and an amazing new art project ‘Paint the Town’ with artist Joseph Schneider.
