The Royal Wootton Bassett Arts Festival would like to thank those who took part in the “Bringing Shakespeare to Life” workshop on Wednesday 6 April 2016 organised by Anna Friend of Quirky Bird Theatre Company and Lisa Williams of Cantanti at the Methodist Church.
Thanks also go to the young artists who entered portraits of Shakespeare in the Spring Community Competition devised by Community Librarian, Carolyn Kennedy.

There will be adjudicated classes on Thursday 23 June for School & Adult Choirs (Adjudicator Penelope Price Jones); for Singing and Instrumental classes on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 June (Adjudicator Rosie Whitfield); and for Total Piano on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 July 2016 (Adjudicator Antony Williams).

The 2016 November Concert will be on the evening of Sunday 6 November at RWB Academy. Once again, local singers and instrumentalists are being invited to form the Choir and Orchestra. Some higher-grade young players who take part in the June Festival will be invited to play a movement from a concerto with the Orchestra. We thank the Area Board for funding some of the costs.
