3rd to the 17th Sept 2016. This year’s theme is ‘Outer Space’ !!!


The theme for the Bradford on Avon Arts Festival 2016 from the 3rd to 18th September is ‘Outer Space’ and the charity this year is Parkinson’s. Whatever your interest, we have something for you – Art Exhibitions, Poetry, Talks, Music, Literary Quiz, and our End of Summer Party & Lantern Procession in Westbury Gardens with the award winning lightshow, music, food stalls and a bar – don’t miss it. It’s free!
Come and see the Small & Beautiful Art Exhibition in the Weaving Shed where all the CD artworks will be on sale for £10. Other art exhibitions will be at The Swan, West Barn and the Fat Fowl. We have space poet Harry Mann appearing at The Swan and the Herschel Museum are presenting ‘How the Georgians saw Outer Space’ at Priory Barn. Come to the Space Speakeasy at the Fat Fowl – cool music from This Side of Paris.
At St. Margaret’s Hall we have a new play ‘Kinetics’ – what can a teenage boy who is into free running and a middle-aged woman with Parkinson’s possibly have in common? The desire to move… With brilliant writing, dynamic projected images and live parkour, this play is personal, poignant and will make you laugh out loud.
