Message from Nick Foster, Festival Director

This year’s festival was due to take place over the first two weekends of October but given all the problems of social distancing for both performers and audience the committee has reluctantly decided to cancel it. A great shame as we had a great line –up including another production by David Cordon of two Alan Bennet “Talking Heads” plays; an evening with Richard Digance; a “Come and Sing the Beatles” afternoon open to everyone young and old; a concert by the Keld Ensemble in the church. And finally an evening with local girl turned Queen of the West End: Kerry Ellis (“Cats”, “Les Miserables”, “Chess”, “ Wicked” and more recently a solo performer and collaborator with Brian May). The good news is that all these artists have agreed to perform next year so pencil in the 1,2,3 and 8,9,10 October 2021 for some top class entertainment here in Woolpit.
