Bradford on Avon Arts Festival continues to provide a varied, stimulating and entertaining late summer programme in our vibrant and historic town. Wiltshire Wildlife is our partner charity and will co-host some exciting local wildlife activities. We are also co-hosting events with BoA Preservation Trust and the BoA Walking Festival.

Events pertaining to our theme will include Small & Beautiful art exhibition, quiz night, talks including the story of aviatrix and speed-queen the Hon. Mrs Bruce, film, a national poetry competition with a special local prize, musical comedy cabaret, sculpture, and more; all contributing to an enjoyable two weeks this coming September culminating in our famous Lantern Procession and End of summer Party in Westbury House Gardens. These are varied and inclusive events with something for everyone!

The lantern procession which has become one of the most popular events in Bradford on Avon will again bring the Festival to a close, proceeding as it does from outside Bradford’s own Ancient Tithe Barn and parading along the illuminated river bank to Westbury Gardens where everyone will be welcomed with Food stalls and live music provided at the End of Summer Party.
