Festival or Organisation description: 

Founded in 1977, the Wetherby Arts Festival celebrates 40 years of bringing the arts of all genres to Wetherby.

A taste of 2017:

Cutting-edge comedy, a Literary Lunch, Guitar Masterclass with international star, Craig Ogden, a workshop for budding young graphic artists, Mediaeval warriors fighting it out in the town centre. The Leeds Symphony Orchestra returns with a special programme for this special year.

Kieran Hodgson will be reprising his hit comedy show “Maestro” one more time, exclusively for the Festival.

International performers, the nationally renowned St Aidan's Swing Band will be returning for another great performance.  As will the superb Spirit of Harmony male voice choir.

Watch out too for our week-night entertainment in the Crypt, dance the night away at our ceilidh, and put on your blue suede shoes to celebrate the life and works of The King.

Be thrilled by the Wetherby Musical Theatre's production of Return to the Forbidden Planet.
