Jubilant! is a FREE mini festival taking place in Stowmarket celebrating the creativity of local school children and young people. It is organised by Stow Culture Group and promotes venues around Stowmarket.

A team of talented artists are currently working with students from 10 local schools to build their own exciting creative project to then be displayed for the public to view during Jubilant!

Each Jubilant! creation will be unique and based on this year’s Festival theme of TOMORROW. They will include one-off performances, exhibitions, audio experiences and short films. Each one will be presented at a cultural venue in Stowmarket town centre throughout Festival week.

As part of the festival, you will be able to pick up a Jubilant! passport and visit each venue to get a stamp, and once you've collected a stamp for each venue, you can fill in your details and hand the form in for your chance to win one of many prizes. Think of it as a treasure trail around some of Stowmarket's venues.

Please note – dates and times for events will vary throughout the Festival week. Information will be added to this page as soon as details are available.
