A carnival parade makes its way up a road. People wear colourful clothing, and carry flags. At the head of the procession a man walks inside a boat made of fabric stretched around a frame.

Outdoor Arts Summer 2023

Arts organisation Emergency Exit Arts will create a large-scale outdoor celebration of the high street, to be delivered in summer 2023.

Emergency Exit Arts are experts in creating memorable public events which often include elements of participation, visual performance, pyrotechnics and music. They will engage local communities to run the commission across five English high streets and will also train local young people in arts production. 

This commission is part of the High Streets Heritage Action Zones Cultural Programme, led by Historic England.
