Wedmore Arts Festival 2018 Update Latest

Wedmore Arts Festival 11 – 19 May

Featuring the Pride of Somerset!

Wedmore Arts Festival is delighted to announce that one of its brilliant performers has just won the Pride of Somerset Youth Award.  Talented young violinist Poppy McGhee, from Wookey, has already won a clutch of awards for her exquisite playing, and the Festival is proud that this particular honour comes just in time for the start of the Festival itself. Poppy will be playing during the first night in St Mary’s Church, Wedmore: 7.30pm Friday 11 May. Also performing that evening will be the wonderful Glastonbury Male Voice Choir – promises to be a night to remember!

There is plenty of other entertainment during the week to enjoy as well – a feast of music, drama, literature and comedy. The full line up includes:

  • Second Best Bed – a one-woman drama starring Liz Grand
  • Andrew Wright discussing his phenomenal career in choreography on the West End stage
  • Hilary Boyd, creator of ‘gran-lit’ introducing us to A Perfect Husband
  • TV’s Simon King with an illustrated talk for the family on Nature Watch
