Welcome to our 2017 Programme
For 2017, the festival has evolved from consisting mostly of events organised by the festival committee to one where various local performers and arts organisations take responsibility for their own shows, with the committee simply co-ordinating the programme. The events marked with IMF are the exception, and the committee is responsible for these.
Check the Info page for a map of the venues and for postcodes for your satnav.
