Meet the Member: Devizes Art Festival

Devizes Arts Festival has been a major highlight of this Wiltshire market town for nearly 40 years. It takes place annually during the first two weeks in June and attracts a wide audience from across the county and beyond.

The aim of the Festival is to bring high quality events to the town, showcasing artists that local people would not normally be able to see. Every year it offers a wide programme of performing arts, including classical and popular music, jazz, theatre, comedy, choral music, poetry, dance, cinema and talks by leading personalities from the worlds of politics, history and literature. Over 30 events take place in a range of venues including the town’s historic Town Hall and Corn Exchange.

In addition to the main Festival, a programme of free fringe events takes place in pubs, clubs and churches across the town.

The Festival is organised and managed entirely by volunteers, supported by the Town Council and local businesses.
