The Festival starts on June 30th with string quartet Cardiff Strings bringing a modern edge to classical music at St Michael’s Church. But before then, two prelude events will take place. First off is the Art & Photography exhibition in the Parish Rooms in Somerton from Saturday May 27th to Saturday 3rd of June (closed Sunday 28th) which is free to visit and features work from more than 100 local artists showcasing their creative talent in various media including photography, needlework, and woodwork. Then local band Twisted Vinyl, arguably the most exciting live band on the South West circuit, is performing barnstorming covers from timeless tunes at Somerton Sports Club on Saturday May 27th.

Other things to look forward to include a History Walk, Festival Quiz, Ukulele band and a talk on Honey Bees with many more events in store too. More information about all the Festival events is available at where tickets can also be purchased.
