Welcome to the fourth Southwold Arts Festival- an eight-day celebration of the arts – music, drama, poetry, visual art, photography, dance, talks and literature. It appeals to all ages and tastes; to local residents and to visitors to our vibrant seaside town. We invite national performers as well as local celebrities; professional, well-established names as well as those starting out on their careers.
The Southwold Arts Festival is run by a group of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about the Arts and plan the programme throughout the year. They are joined by a group of hard-working stewards, first aiders and administrators who help to run the events – every morning, lunchtime, afternoon and evening.
The Southwold Arts Festival is a charity (No 1161134) and all proceeds from ticket sales are used to create the next Festival. We are grateful for the financial support we receive from our Festival Friends and the sponsorship of local businesses, particularly our main sponsor Adnams, so that we are able to run this exciting event.
Booking for the Festival opens in March 2017– two weeks earlier if you become a Festival Friend – online, by phone, by post or in person at the box office in St Edmund’s Hall. Watch this space for details.
Keep up to date with the latest news about the Festival here on our website or on Twitter @Southwold Arts or Facebook.
