We'rve recently celebrated our SEVENTH Bridgnorth Music and ARTS Festival in 2012 which took place from Friday 24th August until Sunday 2nd September.
This wouldn't have been possible without the hard work and support of many people so a huge thank you to everyone who has helped us to reach this milestone. Organisers, performers, venues, supporters and audiences, it just keeps on getting better year on year. In 2006 the former Bridgnorth Folk Festival moved to Shrewsbury leaving a void that was filled by three guys from Highley who wanted to continue with a festival over the August Bank Holiday. Malcolm, Alan and Mark organised a series of great events including a festival in the High Street and events at venues throughout the area. The festival committee has changed over the years but we still follow a similar format with a main event in the High Street on the Sunday before August bank holiday Monday, an event on the Quayside on bank holiday Monday and an event in the Castle grounds on the following Saturday. Plus LOADS of events happening at venues all around the area.
We promote ourselves with the lines "10 Days, 20 Venues, 100's of Artists" and had a blast in 2012, better than ever!
We also became an arts festival in 2010 too. The festival has grown and diversified year on year so for 2010 we renamed the festival to reflect that.
If you have any ideas for events and can help in any way please contact us and get involved, the more the merrier. Keep checking back here for the dates of meetings and events that we're running throughout the year. We've already got some great new events planned including animation, comedy, fine arts, photography and plenty more. Let us know if you have any ideas and would like to get involved?
