Burbage Community Arts Festival Chairman, Laurence Wilkins said:
“This is only the second year that you have been able to book tickets on-line, and numbers are up considerably, that said people can still pick up tickets from the Burbage and Three Pots Post Offices, so everyone can enjoy next month’s fantastic line-up of events”
This year’s Burbage Community Arts Festival will run from Saturday 14th May to Saturday 21st May, with 16 live events over 8 days. This year's festival promises to be the best ever, with the addition of a host of new events a new headline sponsor, Bray & Bray Solicitors of Station Road Hinckley, as well as keyboard legend Rick Wakeman to give the Festival truly global appeal.
Festival Chairman, Laurence Wilkins said:
“2011 is a tremendously exciting year for the Festival, for the first time our programme includes a fantastic Bavarian Oompah night, and a traditional village fete, as well as our first stand-up comedy night. Of course old favourites will still be there like our film night, interactive schools sessions and jazz night with Helen Barrett, along with our spectacular Wednesday Night Live, featuring live music in all six pubs in the village – and as ever that one is free!”.
Another highlight for this year is the 'Plus One' event, which runs a week after the main Festival on Sunday 29th May at Sketchley Grange; organisers have linked up with the Hinckley ACT, in order to create a one-off concert including global music legend Rick Wakeman and local hero Gordon Giltrap. Tickets for that event are only available on 01455 631 609.
