After more highly successful projects in Temple Street Keynsham’s local artists will be at the Festival on Saturday and Sunday with ArtSpace 8.
Find them in their own gallery marquee close to the Love Dance stage at the top of The Park.
Our Sunday resident artist Maya Wolfe once again has designed a package to occupy and delight our youngest participants all afternoon – and, we dare say, their carers too! In the Creative Arena circus tent snuggled in the trees adjacent to the Park’s children’s play area
Maya Wolf is a Bath based artist whose work spans many forms, from sculpture and site specific installation to carnival costume, structures, puppetry, performance and more. Her quirky, honest style has seen her work showcased across the UK and abroad, to great acclaim. Her use of simple, beautiful materials, often re-purposed, give her work a feeling of character and identity that sparks intrigue in the viewer.
It is her passion for creating art that is accessible, that draws in people of all ages and backgrounds. With many years experience as a practising community artist she offers workshops in a diverse range of media, including willow and recycled and found objects.
The Creative Arena tent is open all afternoon on Sunday from midday
Circus Arts in The Park
2018 also celebrates the 250th anniversary of the Circus, and Keynsham Music Festival has acknowledged this in two ways:
Firstly a major spectacle will happen on the Saturday evening in The Park to conclude the the performance of the 5oth anniversary commemoration of the 1968 floods in the Chew Valley.
This really is not to be missed! For details see
To celebrate the 250th Anniversary of Circus we have students from Circomedia showcasing their skills.
They will be performing on both Saturday and Sunday from 3:00pm to 4:30pm at the top end of the park.
