Big Arts Day 2010
A one day festival to celebrate all things artistic and creative in Swindon
Swindon’s creative juices were flowing on Saturday at a special arts festival designed to showcase the town’s top artistic and creativity talent.
The Big Arts Day which took place at Lydaird Park included tents of comedy, arts and crafts, a youth music stage, a dance music stage, street performers and much more.
But one thing that wowed the crowd was the spectacular digital arts projection across Lydiard Park which finished the day off.
"We wanted to put on a free day to show that there is a lot to do in Swindon, and today has done just that," commented Helen Miah, head of culture Swindon Borough Council.
"After the positive effect the BBC Big Weekend had last year we wanted to continue the legacy, and we hope this weekend will now continue for many years to come."
