Events in Shrewsbury

If you’re looking for events to fill your days out in Shrewsbury, then look no further, there’s a calendar packed with something for everyone – from the sell-out Shrewsbury Folk Festival to Charles Darwin’s School Days, the Shrewsbury Children's Bookfest to the Cartoon Festival - did you know Shrewsbury is the unofficial home of the British comics industry? 

This summer you’ll also see Shrewsbury Food Festival packing out the Quarry Park with local food and drink, the world’s oldest floral festival, the Shrewsbury Flower Show, bringing in 3 million blooms and on the River Severndragon boatsworld championship coracles, canoes and crafts will compete in races and festivals

When the school holidays come around, keep the kids entertained with Junior Jesters at Theatre Severn, take part in a workshop at the Hive or join in the Snapper Jaxx kids clubs in the Darwin and Pride Hill shopping centres

With an independent cinema in an old market hall, the 29-acre Quarry Park and an impressive theatre sitting upon the river, Shrewsbury is at the heart of cultural activities in Shropshire. Look out for big name artists on screen and stage and budding performers looking to breakthrough at more intimate live venues.
