Evesham Journal: Bewdley Festival Kicks-Off This Weekend

October 8th, 2015

eveshamjournal15aIt’s that time of year again when lovers of music, comedy, drama and the arts descend on Wyre Forest for the annual Bewdley Festival.

This year marks the 28th anniversary of Bewdley Festival which will bring its traditional mix of local talent, regional celebrities and national and international stars of stage, screen and concert halls, all packed into an eventful ten days and all delivered entirely by volunteers.

The festival kicks off on Friday (October 9) with British music legend, Leo Sayer’s sold out performance as part of a series of rare and much-anticipated shows. Visiting from Australia, Grammy award-winning Leo comes to Bewdley with his Restless Years Tour.

Other performances sold out this year include a performance by Toyah Willcox, a return visit from Lesley Smith as Nell Gwynne, the final of three performances of the Ballad of St Kenelm, AD 821 by renowned composer Andrew Downes, comedy with Dr Phil Hammond and an annual lecture from Max Keen.
