Help select Autumn Season arts events

The Library Presents team is currently planning the Autumn Season of arts events in libraries across the County. They would value the views of residents on the type of arts events to be enjoyed in local libraries – select from music, theatre, performances and workshops, plus more.

Residents are invited to help select The Library Presents’ Autumn Season of arts events. The majority of activity will take place in libraries across the County and there will be some on-line offers too. All events are ticketed at reasonable prices, with options for child and family activity as well as events for adults of all ages.
