Bewdley Festival 2019 is the 32nd consecutive edition of the annual multi-arts festival to be held in the North Worcestershire town of Bewdley and runs from 11th to 20th October.
Since the first festival was held in 1988 we have always striven to "Bring the Best to Bewdley and the Best out of Bewdley" by programming an eclectic mix of music, talks, comedy, art, poetry and performance featuring well-known stars, interesting personalities and local talent.
Bewdley Festival also presents events throughout the year including regular Literary Events and activities and opportunities for younger people through Bewdley Youth Festival.
