This is our story

Empowering creativity, fostering community, and enriching lives through diverse and inclusive arts experiences in Brigg.

Brigg Live Arts is run by a small group of dedicated volunteers and we are always looking for others who love the arts, a wide range of music as well as the theatre to come and join us. You can contact us on our Facebook page, as well as by email on

2005 – 2011

The original Brigg Live Arts was established in 2005 to hold an Art Exhibition and following that initial success, they hosted an exhibition every year until 2011.

2015 – 2016

Brigg Live Arts then set up again in early 2015, led by Roberta Fulford who was an enthusiastic musician, folk artist and dancer.  From the start the new committee wanted to bring a variety of events and activities to the people of Brigg and the surrounding area.  To this end, they established an early connection with LiveLincs who promote small performing groups or individuals, and offer a range of events for spring and autumn seasons.  In 2015 we took full advantage of LiveLincs and hosted 4 events, one for parents and children “The Ugly Duckling” – a musical shadow Show, “The Secret World of Charles Dickens” – a magic show with a spooky Victorian literary twist, Circus Berzerkus and the Balbir Singh Dance Company.  We also promoted two events ourselves – The Hut People in June and Celtic Christmas Strings in December.

2016 – 2018

In May 2016 we organised the first Brigg Live Arts Fest in the Market Place offering a wide range of activities with free entry for all.  The Fest included music, singing, dancing, drama, workshops, storytelling, busking and craft stalls.  It involved a huge amount of work to set up but was a great success and the Fest was repeated in 2017 and 2018.  We revived the Art Exhibition over the bank holiday weekend in August 2016 and marked up another successful event which was held again in 2018.

2018 – Present

Over the years we have hosted folk evenings, a variety of solo musicians and groups and have also collaborated to co-host events with Folk Round Ere.  We try to use local suppliers wherever we can and were pleased to be able to sell tickets for our events via the Tourist Information Centre for a number of years.  Now we are very grateful to Grandad’s Shed and The Rabbit Hole who sell tickets on our behalf.
