Comedian Jo tops bill at Thornbury Arts festival
Published on: 02 Jan 2015
COMEDIAN Jo Caulfield will be among the headline acts at the 2015 Thornbury Arts Festival.
The star of many TV, radio and live shows will feature in a packed programme of music, literature, performance and visual art between April 17 and 26.
The schedule has been expanded to add afternoon sessions to the traditional format of evening and lunchtime events. Organisers also hope to introduce more children to the festival, offering masterclasses and workshops that range from circus skills and theatrical drawing to the playing of miniature harps.
The programme will feature film, storytelling, talks and a concert by performers from the annual Thornbury children’s eisteddfod in March.
Festival artistic director Shirley Sharp said: “At first it seemed slightly daunting to give a new image and appeal to the festival, while still retaining its amazing formula that has worked for 45 years but it is proving to be very exciting. We have a new logo and will launch our new-look website in January.
