Further details to follow once they are confirmed.

Middlesbrough Art Weekender was born in 2017 and has grown to become the largest annual contemporary arts festival in the North East, an event that champions Middlesbrough’s heritage and industrial past, transforming the town centre into a creative hub.

Middlesbrough is the creative gem of the North East, and MAW shouts about this with a town takeover every year.

Over the years, the festival has invited artists to make the Transporter Bridge sing, installed a giant drawing ball at Middlesbrough Town Hall, and brought a dystopian model village to Centre Square.
