The Southwold Arts Festival 2014

By sarahhowe, also posted in News on

This year marks the first Southwold Arts Festival and Adnams is proud to be lead sponsors. Southwold has brought great inspiration to a variety of artists who live in the area and so it seems fitting that we should have a festival that brings them together for the enjoyment of all. The Southwold Arts Festival takes place from 28th June to 5th July 2014. Emma Freud, the Patron of the Southwold Arts Festival, says: "My favourite town already has everything that makes life wonderful... a music festival, a literary festival, a summer theatre and now its own Arts Festival - a huge celebration of everything that is artistically fabulous in our community. The volunteer planning team has been working since early 2013 to make the events wonderful, dynamic and inspiring. Choose an event you know will be great, but also take a risk on one event you've never heard of and have no idea about... that's the exciting part." The festival begins on Saturday 28th June 2014 with a Children's Parade to the Market place where the festival will be officially opened at 12pm by Emma Freud. The High Street will then be filled with live music, entertainers, artists and local food and drink until 6pm.
