The Burbage Community Arts Festival 2011 will run from Saturday 14th May to Saturday 21st May, with 16 live events over 8 days. The festival promises to be the best ever with the addition of a host of new events, a new key sponsor and the keyboard legend Rick Wakeman to give the Festival truly global appeal.
Festival Chairman, Laurence Wilkins said “This is a tremendously exciting year for the Festival, for the first time our programme includes:
a stand-up comedy night
traditional village fete
our first Bavarian Oompah night.
Of course old favourites will still be there like:
our film night
interactive schools sessions
along with our spectacular Wednesday Night Live, featuring live music in all six pubs in the village
... and as ever, the spectacular Wednesday Night Live, is free!”.
In its 14th year, Burbage Arts Festival is delighted to announce the involvement in this year’s event of Hinckley solicitors, Bray & Bray. Sarah Gill from the Station Road based firm said “We are delighted to help support this important and unique community event, and are fortunate to be involved in such an exciting year, as the Festival goes from strength to strength”.
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.
