Coming this year

13-22 October 2017

A Festival of

The Spoken Word, Music, Comedy, Social Events, Visual Delights, Local Heritage and Celebration

A week-long Arts Festival for all.


Coming soon: the famous Leeds Symphony Orchestra with this year’s artist-in-residence Craig Ogden, the internationally-renowned classical guitarist, often to be heard on Classic FM.  We’ll be welcoming back local favourites such as the Wetherby Silver Band, Light Musical Singers and Musical Theatre.  We have a great comedy line-up and not one but three Literary events.  The week-long programme has social events in the line-up.  Not only that, we’ll be initiating some new ideas such as outdoors entertainment.


Help us celebrate



This is our 40th Anniversary year

Enter our Scarecrow competition.  Go on our special I-Spy tour of Wetherby or one of our walks.  Enter some of the Fringe events held in the Wetherby Library and elsewhere.
