Wintertide Festival CIC

Wintertide Festival CIC was formed in December 2022  after nine years running as a voluntary  annual independent festival.

Working at a grassroots level on the Headland in Hartlepool we are rooted in the community.  The festival is growing as an outdoor arts event, creating opportunities for established and emerging artists to showcase their talent.

We are always looking to partner, support and enhance existing work. Please contact hello@wintertidefestival.co.uk if you wish to connect with us.
