Create Festival 2016

Come along to experience something new and to help celebrate the achievements of our talented students from the School of Arts and Media.

Now in its fifth year, Create Salford aims to excite and encourage creative minds through a series of events. Starting as a three day showcase event, Create has now become a two month long arts festival, covering multiple arts and media-based areas.

At the festival, you will have the opportunity to experience innovative work at a range of events including the degree show, original theatrical, comedy and dance performances, live music, poetry readings, a fashion runway show and much more. With so much variety there is something for everyone!

Events will be staged across multiple venues on campus, as well as in partner venues across the Salford and Manchester area. Why not take the opportunity to go somewhere you haven’t been before?
