I produce inclusive festivals and community events with an emphasis on high quality programming, social purpose, diversity and community participation.  I love working on arts projects that engage people from all walks of life, helping them to connect with each other and  to explore the worlds in which they live.


I keep up to date with the best work on offer by maintaining excellent local, national and international networks and by making and touring my own outdoor and community arts projects across UK and Europe (see Director).

I am presently Co-Director of Edgelands Arts, Director of Holmfirth Arts Festival (since 2018) and work regularly as  freelance Event Manager for Right Up Our Street. I was  Associate Producer Festivals and Events at Creative Scene (2018- 2019), From 2015-2018, Between 1990 and 2017, was founding Artistic Director of Faceless Arts.

"It was a pleasure to collaborate with Bev Adams of festival manager for our third annual DNweekeND festival. Bev brought a calm, friendly and utterly 'can do' professionalism to the project and communicated brilliantly with the festival team and commissioned artists before, during and after the event. There was a real care about the work, outdoor arts and ensuring everyone had the best possible experience." Andrew Loretto, Director - Right Up Our Street & DNweekeND 2016
