HOME FESTIVALS

HOME Festivals summer and winter will bring inspiring new arts events to the town centre and challenge perceptions of Slough and its culture.

 

PAST EVENTS

STREETS ALIVE SLOUGH

In June 2017 HOME Slough held its first summer festival. On Saturday 17 June HOME Slough presented an array of hilarious, jaw-dropping and toe-tapping performances throughout the town from The Curve to the square. 

The day was full of events with dancing bodyguards giving shoppers the VIP treatment, samba rhythms and New Orleans jazz putting a spring in their step, comedy roadworkers suddenly displaying circus skills in Mackenzie Square, and breathtaking parkour performers and spoken word in the Plaza. 

In a spectacular finale to the afternoon, all the way from France, Les Vernisseurs transformed the Town Centre with a riot of colour and playful mayhem; filling the sky, streets, shops and onlookers with blue confetti and comedy chaos. 

The day was run by HOME Slough with vital support from Aik Saath, Slough Youth Parliament, The Curve Slough, Xtra Art, SWIPE, YES Slough, Creative Junction, Slough Borough Council, Slough Town Centre Partnership, The Queensmere Observatory, Global Streets, Arts Council England and Creative People and Places programme. See our coverage in the Slough Express.

SPARKS FESTIVAL

In December 2016, consortium partner Creative Junction worked with Emergency Exit Arts, Slough Museum, Xtra Art and the River & Rowing Museum to run the first Spark Festival. The festival culminated in a massive parade through the town centre with the participation of community groups who helped make lanterns and other props for the occasion.
