The Broadway Arts Festival 2016 (June 3rd - 19th) is nearly here.

This fourth biennial festival features twelve participatory based art and music workshops, an eight strong lecture series, concerts, theatre and photography.

400 years have passed since Shakespeare's death, and Sir Roy Strong explores the quest for his garden at New Place Stratford-upon-Avon. Join him on a journey involving a bizarre cast of characters.

It includes the winners and runners up of the Festival's Open Art competition, from small framed paintings, to large sculptures in the garden.The ever popular 'Visitors' Choice' award will be chosen by visitors to the exhibition, so come along and vote for your favourite entry.  

The Art of World War II - A Personal Collection The John Noott Collection of World War II art will be on show. This is a unique exhibition which reflects the memories of the War of art dealer John Noott who has collected over 70 paintings, drawings and prints.   Among the artists represented are Edward Bawden, Edward Seago, Pearl Falconer and Shearer Armstrong.      

VOCES8 The British vocal ensemble is now established as one of the most versatile and best-loved international singing groups. 'Sing Joyfully' celebrates the joy and beauty of voices in harmony and will include works by William Byrd, Mendelssohn, Rachmaninov and songs arranged by Jim Clements They are also running a free workshop Music for ages 12-19.

Nicholas Merryweather Schumann's Dichterliebe, considered by many his best song cycle, is beautifully complemented by a selection of English songs in this delightful recital by the distinguished baritone, Nicholas Merryweather, already well-known here from his appearances at Longborough Festival Opera. He will be accompanied by Joseph Ramadam on piano.  

Trio Severn The trio featuring Zoe Beyers on violin, David Powell on cello and Robert Markham on piano will present a concert to include Schumann Piano Trio in D minor, Messiaen -  Louange à l'éternité de Jésus, Debussy Violin Sonata in G minor and Shostakovitch Piano Trio no 2 in E minor.  

John Julius Norwich John Julius Norwich will give a talk entitled 'Paddy's World' about international travel writer Patrick Leigh Fermor, who lived in nearby Dumbleton. After the war a succession of books - mostly, but not invariably, about Greece - revealed him as perhaps the greatest travel writer that this country has ever produced.
