Live Arts set to thrill

The 2018 Wenlock Olympian Society Live Arts Festival will take place over the two weekends of 10 and 11 and 24 and 25 March. This year the festival will consist of two main disciplines: dance and music, with over 600 entries in total. The president of the Society – Jonathan Edwards CBE – will attend on Sunday 25 March, when he will award some of the medals.

“I’m really excited to be back at Live Arts once again,” says Jonathan. “So much talent and endeavour on show make it a delight. And of course a visit to Much Wenlock is always a treat.”

Taking over from Joyce Pridmore as the events main organiser is Sue Hayward, who says, “The Live Arts Festival provides a friendly and supportive atmosphere for young performers of varying ages and performance experience to take part in competition.

“I’d encourage people to come along to watch, listen and support our local talented young people. There’s no charge to be part of the audience.”
