Wetherby Festival    11 – 20 October 2019

FRIDAY 11th OCTOBER

Literary Lunch 

This year we are welcoming well-known politican, Alan Johnson.  See our What On events page for more details. We are very excited by winning this popular politician and author.

Call My Wine Bluff

Six wines, three ‘experts’ – who is telling the truth?  Pit your team’s (up to eight) taste buds (or come on your own).

Ceilidh 

Dance the night away at a fun-filled evening for everyone.  A ceilidh is an ideal way to have fun with your friends and let your hair down.  Don’t worry if you think you’ve got two left feet.  The music will soon get your feet tapping, and their caller will walk you through the dances. Neil Barron has performed across the globe and is a regular feature on BBC Scotland. A very big welcome to Neil.
