The annual event, now in its 34th year, will play host to special film showings of Salma Hayek's biopic 'Frida' and 'Pollock', which details the life and times of American painter Jackson Pollock, together with a karaoke-style evening of 'memorable moments from the Silver Screen' performed by the Wotton-under-Edge Dramatic Society. As well as their well-established outdoor concert on Wotton Hill, Wotton & District Silver Band will be playing some well-known themes from the movies.

With events taking place at venues around Wotton-Under-Edge, kids will have an opportunity to 'make some noise' at the junk music workshop, while more traditional sounds can be heard at the Festival concerts with the Emerald Ensemble and Oriana Singers, and trad jazz night with Gloucester-based band Electric Fred. There's also an opportunity to find out more about a local restoration project recently in the news with a talk on new National Trust acquisition Tyntesfield.

Gordon Phillips, Festival Co-ordinator says: "We hope you will come and support us and enjoy the feast of artistic delights set out for you".
