The Angel Hotel pledges support to assist the return of Arts Fresco

After an appeal for support from local businesses, the Angel Hotel have this month donated £1000 to support Harborough’s outdoor street theatre festival, Arts Fresco.
The popular event will return on Sunday 14th September. Arts Fresco will welcome a wide variety of street performers from across Europe and further afield to Market Harborough.

In addition to the donation, The Angel Hotel will be offering discounted accommodation to acts travelling to the town and is helping provide meeting space for members of the committee in the long run up to the day itself.

There has been much excitement surrounding the return of Arts Fresco to Harborough, after being cancelled due to funding cuts in 2012. This year’s Arts Fresco has regained the funding of Arts Council England, and is encouraging the support of local businesses.

Darren Barton, Manager of The Angel Hotel says “We are so pleased that this unique event is returning to the town centre.  Over the years our guests have been delighted and amazed by the acts and it’s generated such a great deal of fun and excitement in the town. Over the last few years it’s been sorely missed and we were only too happy to make a contribution towards assisting its return”

Martin Hill, spokesman for the Arts Fresco Committee says “Although we have been very fortunate to have larger donations from the Arts Council, it’s local companies such as the Angel that have really be able to make the return of Arts Fresco possible.  And it’s not only the money, it’s the support in kind that is so greatly appreciated”.

The festival is expected to bring 10,000 visitors from throughout the Midlands, putting Harborough on the map as host to the region’s largest outdoor street arts event.
