DAGFEST 2019

DAGFEST is a multi-art form festival that attracts over 2000 people each year. 2019 is the fifth year of the festival and this year our theme focuses on: celebrations, birthdays and street parties, creating a wonderful fun day out for all.

We also have installations and performances from outdoor theatre, dancers and lots of opportunities to try arts and crafts activities on the day.

The purpose of the festival is to provide a huge range of participatory, accessible and lively arts activities on people’s doorstep in Dagenham.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS TO HELP US WITH A VARIETY OF OPPORTUNITIES BEFORE AND DURING THE FESTIVAL. 

Get in touch with Daniel on 020 8594 7136 to find out more
