Fringe festival is all set to roll
10:38am Thursday 15th August 2013 in Latest News
PREPARATIONS are well under way for Bradford on Avon’s Fringe Festival with music, arts, dance, drama, literature, film and comedy on offer.
The festivities kick off with an opening party at Westbury Gardens on August 31, which features sculpture-making, music, and family and children’s fun.
The festival, which launched in 2010, gives local talent the opportunity to show the town what they have to offer and events are planned at different locations throughout the town.
Kurt Paulus, chair of the organising team, said: “We’ve had great support from businesses in town. The majority of events are confirmed and we are tying up loose ends, while staying open to ideas for last-minute surprises.
“We hope we can continue to build interest in the Fringe and also add people to our hard-working team to bring fresh ideas and more muscle. Mostly we hope that many people of all ages will come and enjoy the fun.”
There are over 45 events billed for the festival, including a jazz factory at Sebastian’s Bistro, drama groups Bootleg Theatre and the Bradfordians at the Swan Hotel, and a film night at the Mount Pleasant Centre.
Organisers are keen for more volunteers to help with the event, which finishes on September 8 with an afternoon of music at The Barge Inn and the Canal Tavern in Frome Road.
On the last day there will be a prize draw at The Three Horseshoes, with many prizes donated by local businesses, and tickets are available at Made in Bradford on Avon in Lamb Yard and The Three Horseshoes.
Most of the events are free but for further information visit www.fringeboa.co.uk
