We are deep in brochure production here at Festival House and it's shaping up to be a fantastic year! The full programme will be announced in July so there is not long to wait now.

We had some exciting news last month that our application to the Arts Council has been successful meaning that something special will be happening in 2013 and 2014; watch this space for the latest news.

Finally, we've heard about some great events coming up this month including an afternoon organised by our Festival Friends Committee and open to all at the glorious Doddington Gardens - we'd love to see you there!
