Grimsby Creates WLTM creative, innovative Festival Director for LTR. Festival director sought to lead the development and delivery of an exciting festival for 2021 and beyond as part of the cultural development programme for the town.

Have you the skills, experience and drive to work with local creatives, businesses and community organisations to deliver something really exciting for the people of Grimsby?

Knowledge of engaging innovative and exciting artists who can positively contribute to the Festival is a must, making sure that there are ample opportunities for local creatives and event providers.

The Grimsby Festival of the Sea will be focused on events and activities connected to the Grimsby Creates themes of Food, Heritage, Origins and Future, celebrating Grimsby’s rich sea faring heritage in contemporary and engaging ways.

As part of the Festival, a range of artists from across the creative sector, businesses, educational establishments, community groups and heritage experts will be brought together to help encourage people to explore the origins and heritage of the town, as well as its future, in all forms.

It’s anticipated that the free, family friendly festival will take place across a range of sites in Grimsby Town Centre next year initially, over a weekend next summer. Due to the ongoing pandemic, it’s also likely that virtual content will form a part of the festival.
