Umbrella Arts Festival takes place on March 23rd 2019 at NST City, Guildhall Square in the heart of Southampton city centre. The day starts at 10am, music and art workshops commence at 11am and we will close at 4pm.
Our sister venue, The Art House is hosting poetry workshops, just up the road at 178 Above Bar Street, SO14 7DW.
Umbrella Arts Festival is committed to making our festival as accessible and inclusive as possible for all our customers. NST City is a fully accessible venue, with lifts to all floors. If you need to travel around via mobility scooter, then you can join Southampton Shopmobility.
The ground floor of the Art House is accessible by wheelchair (there is no lift). If you have mobility challenges and wish to participate in the poetry workshops, the workshops will take place downstairs.
