The Festival of the Erotic Arts is a unique showcase event dedicated to the multi-disciplinary art forms which make up the Erotic Arts.
The event aims to create an environment to view art and performance rarely seen in mainstream galleries or theaters and a unique setting in which we celebrate the multi-disciplinary nature of the Erotic Arts.
“Frankly, if there isn’t anything here that piques your curiosity, you’re probably better off having a nice cup of tea & a biscuit in front of Corrie…” – The Scotsman’s Pulse Magazine May 2012
Festival of the Erotic Arts is a sex-positive celebration of a thriving artform.
