Burns Night Art Battle

Our highlight of the year - celebrating and showcasing the great work being done by people and organisations.

For 2019 we're taking a more relaxed approach and doing things differently – with a very special ANTZ Art Battle.

Think challenges and battles, and imagine the challenge of creating a work of art in just 30 minutes. Then think of doing it in front of a live audience. A live audience that’s going to judge the winner. That’s what faces five up and coming artists on 1 February 2019 at our annual ANTZ event – and we’d love you to be there

Art Battle

What it is? It’s a live competitive painting event. Take 5 fearless artists, 30 minutes on the clock and a circulating audience. The artists create their masterpiece in just 30 minutes. You watch and vote. It’s that simple.

It’s fun, it’s engaging, it’s different and it’s live

And at the end of the evening there’s an auction, so you could be going home with your own unique piece of art! All the money goes to the artists who are local up and coming painters and illustrators.

There’s only a couple of events like this each year so we’re really pleased Art Battle Manchester are working with us.


Over dinner we’ll hear from three high-quality speakers.

Jonathan Rose joins us to share his valuable insights and tips from the Tier1 CSR journey. Also announced this week is Martin Ainscough, who will focus on ‘how to give hope to people disengaged from mainstream life’. Further speakers to be announced, including three real-life stories from people directly impacted by the work ANTZ and organisations like yours do.
