We are playing it safe and going online this year with a super exciting Come On Down 2021. I get to be a glamorous presenter alongside DJ Andy 007 playing some banging tunes and with the rest of our artists showcasing their work.

Thanks for all the support so far! The Come On Down Crew have got together a great line-up with dance, film, interactive exhibition and spoken word. Performance by The Stars and live workshops with Headway Arts & friends.

Most tickets for our small ‘studio audience’ have gone, only a few are left – so get in quick!

LAST CALL: if you’d like to show a film of your work and/or be in our limited live studio audience please email us for entry details:  Let us know by Friday 8th October.

I am also looking for people to interview on my Zoom POWER sofa. If you’ve got something interesting to say email me and get your voice heard!!

COME ON DOWN – Wednesday 20th & Thursday 21st October 2021 10am – 5pm Hybrid LIVE event and online live stream! The theme this year is POWER!!

Full programme and links will be posted on our website soon. We’ll also be taking over the Headway Arts Twitter account so keep a lookout for that. We’ll be using the hashtag #ComeOnDown21.

So Exciting!

Nikki Shelley,
The Come On Down Crew
