Unity Festival

Hijinx Unity Festival is over for another year

And what a year it was....

The ninth Hijinx Unity Festival took place from 28 June to 2 July 2017 showcasing a remarkable range of international inclusive and disability performances.

This year for the first time we transported the Festival antics to beautiful Caernarfon. Performers took over the Dock, the town square, Galeri Arts Centre and the world heritage site - Castell Caernarfon.

About the Festival

Hijinx Unity Festival showcases the best inclusive and disability arts from around the world in Wales for one week each year. We created it back in 2008 to give a high profile platform to stunning work made by disabled and non-disabled artists working together as equals.
