What is The Ring?

The Ring is a major new arts programme celebrating the historic 21-mile Worcestershire circular canal that flows through the urban and rural landscapes of Worcester and Droitwich.

The breadth, ambition and calibre of the contemporary arts programme will be a cultural first for Worcestershire.

The project has been developed with the support of a range of organisations, led by the Canal & River Trust, a charity that looks after 2,000 miles of waterways across England and Wales; including the waterways of The Ring – Worcestershire and Birmingham Canals, the Droitwich Canals and the River Severn.
