Yes, it’s that time of year again – the Wedmore Arts Festival is almost upon us – and it promises to be a King-sized event!
The Wedmore Arts Society kick off the celebration on Saturday 6 May with an Exhibition of their work in the Masonic Hall. And from then on there’s a full eight days of right royal festivities featuring everything from drama to dance, from strings to brass, and from cycling to farming.
There’s a laughing policeman, some singing sailors (remember them last year? They’re back!), Lord Byron, Lady Churchill, even David Bowie! Exciting young musical talent alongside established photographic wisdom. awe-inspi
In fact, there is something for everybody – have a look at the website for more information
But, if you are still not convinced, why not show us what you can do yourself? The chance to busk on the streets of Wedmore is this year’s fantastic innovation – open to all! Go and see Jan Daintree at The Cottage Gallery in The Borough to book your slot – it’s free!
