This year in September, we celebrate the 26th anniversary of the annual Manly Arts Festival.

Our region will be ignited with an eclectic mix of exciting events featuring prominent musicians, performers and visual artists, hosted in a number of venues including artist studios, Manly Art Gallery & Museum, the Creative Space and Glen Street Theatre.

Each year, Council joins forces with artists and cultural organisations with the support of local businesses, to develop a creative and entertaining arts program for our residents and visitors. This year you’ll find lots to see, hear and participate in, with a range of creative learning opportunities to explore and enjoy.

Northern Beaches Council is committed to supporting cultural initiatives in our area and genuine opportunities for participation in the creative arts.
