Thoughts of Spring have already sprung in Wymondham, as the town looks forward to its very first Spring Arts Festival (20 April – 6 May 2024), sponsored by Wymondham Magazine.
Timed to begin with the first Farmers’ Market after Easter, on Saturday 20 April, the Festival will run until Bank Holiday Monday 6 May, when the Abbey is scheduled to have its famous Duck Race.
Events and activities that are due to take place during that period (and a few more besides) are being collated by the Festival Coordinator, Tony Vale, to form a Programme, that will be published in the March 2024 edition of Wymondham Magazine and delivered to 8,500 homes in the town.
Tony said: “This will be a great opportunity to bring community groups and businesses together under a common theme”.
Some of the highlights are a special Eco event at Wymondham Baptist Church on the launch day and Wymondham Players’ latest production in the following week (24-27 April).
Over the May Bank Holiday weekend (3-6 May) there will be a Beer Festival at Wymondham Ex-Services Club, with an Arts and Crafts event and an opportunity to “Meet the Local Authors” in Central Hall, on Saturday 4 May.
This will be followed in the evening, by a selection of original plays from play writing group, Four by Four, at North Wymondham Community Centre, to mark the 50th anniversary of the community venue.
On Sunday 5 May there will be a concert by Status Quo tribute band, Counterfeit Quo at Central Hall.
Community groups and businesses who would like their event or activity included in the Festival Programme should send the details to Tony Vale, via email@example.com - no later than 12 February.
