The Yarn Barton Centre
The 18th Annual
From the Festival Director: Tanya Bruce-Lockhart
This year's Beaminster Festival of Music and the Arts was a great success and enjoyed by all. The programme featured music of all kinds, literary talks, open air theatre, art exhibitions, schools workshops - a menu of events to feast on and suit all tastes. The bonus this year was that the sun shone - every day! The dates next year for the 19th Beaminster Festival are confirmed as Saturday 28th June - Sunday 6th July. Festivities will open with the ever popular Dancing in the Square event featuring DT8 - the best band in the South West - and will end with the Director's Concert featuring The Orchestra of the Swan, from Stratford upon Avon, with a programme of English music to coincide with the 450th anniversary of the great bard's birth.
