Welcome to the Heaton Festival. Every two years, Heatonians get together to enjoy the best of what our community has to offer. We listen to local bands, eat good food, drink local coffee and have loads of fun! Something for the whole family: from jumbo bouncy castles to selfie scavenger hunts!
The Heaton Festival is designed to encourage people of all ages to discover more about Heaton and what it has to offer. This is a celebration of our neighbourhood, with great food, beautiful art, fun sports activities and lots of amazing music – all produced right here in Heaton.
