Wedmore Arts Festival 2019

Well,  the 2018 Festival is over for another year.  Thank you to all our supporters and sponsors who've helped this years Festival to be a great success.  Headlined by comedian Jeremy Hardy and wonderful jazz & swing singer Clare Teal, all of our events were very well attended.

Dates currently planned for the 2019 Festival are Friday 10th -  Sunday 19th May 2019. Look forward to seeing you next year! 

The 2019 Wedmore Arts Festival is taking shape, and looks to be an even bigger and more diverse event than it was last year. We are currently exploring ates and ideas for more than 15 events and we will bring you confirmation of these as soon as we can.

In the meantime 

  • we will definitely be welcoming back the phenomenal young violinist Poppy McGhee, singing this year at a very special concert brought to us by the much loved Somerset Choral Society. That’s on Saturday 11 May. 
  • On Wednesday 15 May we have another Wedmore favourite: Liz Grand, who entertained us so magnificently with her one-woman play on Shakespeare’s Second Best Bed, returns with an Agatha Christie story entitled "Where is Mrs Christie" which tells the story of Agatha Christie's 11 day "disappearance" in 1926....not to be missed!
  • And on Friday 17 May the sensational Henry Blofeld will be regaling the village with his favourite sporting anecdotes. 

Plenty of variety promised already and we also have more music, drama and poetry up our sleeves, plus of course our wonderful series of "Lunch with the Speaker",  several fascinating topics and personalities are planned in that spot.

If you have not already put the dates into next year’s diary, please do so now! 10 May to 19 May 2019. You wouldn’t want to miss anything!
