It's not too late to be part of the newly rejuvenated Bromsgrove Festival
ORGANISERS interested in being part of the relaunched Bromsgrove Festival can still apply to have their event included in online publicity.
The Bromsgrove Festival brochure has been finalised and is expected to hit the streets soon, but new events can still be included on the festival website and Bromsgrove Arts Alive website.
Established in 1960, the festival has been run for more than 20 years, and last year the Advertiser reported that a new group was formed which will relaunch the event, expanding it into a wider arts and cultural celebration.
Copies of the brochure can be picked up at the Artrix, Avoncroft Museum, local libraries, shops and coffee houses as well as at the various venues where events are scheduled to take place.
With nearly 80 events planned during the festival, ranging from folk music and visual arts to street performances and dance displays it promises to be a very busy summer in the town.
