Golden Year for Thornbury Arts Festival

Friday, April 26, to Saturday, May 4 2019

A landmark anniversary will be reached in 2019 when Thornbury Arts Festival celebrates 50 years of bringing top class entertainment to the town.

For its golden jubilee, the festival will offer a programme featuring stars such as comedian and actor Miles Jupp, the host of BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz who will be the opening night guest.

Also appearing during the nine-day festival will be the Reverend Richard Coles (photo below), who went from being a member of the pop duo The Communards to a parish priest and broadcaster.

Writer and broadcaster Kate Humble, who has appeared in many popular wildlife TV programmes, will take her audience behind the camera and also talk about her latest book, Thinking on My Feet, when she visits the town.

Meanwhile, historian David Starkey will trace the marriage customs of the British monarchy in a talk that comes after the wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle, which turns out to be not so radical as some might think.

As one of the longest running arts festivals in the country, the Thornbury event is run entirely by volunteers and boasts a mix of daytime and evening events to appeal to as wide an audience as possible.

A strong music offering has been included for 2019, ranging from Celtic rock band RockPipes and The Temperance Seven, which specialises in popular music and jazz from the 1920s and 30s, to the multi-award winning folk duo Show of Hands.

Mezzo-soprano Marienella Phillips will also perform during a lunchtime recital, appearing with pianist Bradley Parker.

Among other afternoon events will be Fiona Warin's humorous look at the history of allotments and the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow militaria and arms expert Mark Smith sharing the history of the Victoria Cross.
