Our 2021 Festival is on from Friday 24th September to Sunday 26th providing a range of welcome live entertainment for the whole family.   We look forward to welcoming you!

Here’s our programme for the Festival, and we would also like to assure our audiences that WAF is doing all it can to minimise the risks of Covid. The Village Hall has recently installed the latest state of the art ventilation system, hand gel will be available at all venues together with good ventilation & social distancing will be encouraged where possible.  We are asking anyone who feels unwell, or has been in contact with someone who has tested positive, to stay away. (Join us in2022 instead!)

But ideally we would love to see you at both Festivals: 24 – 26 September 2021, and 7 – 14 May 2022!

Supporting the Arts in Wedmore

As a not for profit organisation Wedmore Arts Festival  is committed to using  the surplus we generate from our events to help support young local artists and performers, and to encourage a love of the arts.

The first recipient of our support was Poppy McGhee, the brilliant young violinist who has become a firm favourite amongst local audiences – and now further afield.

Whilst continuing to support Poppy, our most recent discovery is Innes Oliver who is stepping out into the world of ballet. This year we have been able to assist her in a variety of ways, for example making it possible for her to attend the National Youth Ballet’s summer school and subsequently perform at Sadlers Wells.

We continue to explore new ways of encouraging the next generation to develop a passion for art-based subjects, and we are currently in discussion with local schools about projects we might support.

The first of these was the funding of special Christmas performance by Bristol Old Vic for Wedmore First School
