Thornbury Arts Festival

About Thornbury Arts Festival

The Arts Festival came into being in 1969 with varied programmes of events covering music, drama, film and comedy, as well as visual arts.

Signatures in the archive album range from an astronaut, an explorer, radio and television personalities and actors, writers and scientists as well as singers and musicians.

The programme also includes lunchtime talks and entertainment and a walk.

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.

More details are available on the Arts Festival website www.thornburyartsfestival.org.uk - and also the facebook page.
