About Bewdley Festival

Bewdley Festival Limited is a company limited by guarantee and was incorporated on the 24th May 1989 (Company Registration No. 02388535). It is a registered charity (Charity Registration No. 701629). We hold arts and cultural events each year for the benefit of our local community.

Our purposes are exclusively charitable and all the funds raised are for the charity’s benefit and used solely in carrying out its objectives as set out in our Memorandum of Association:

  • Advance the education of the public particularly in the neighbourhood of Bewdley by the production and promotion of educational plays and other forms of art including the arts of drama, dancing, singing, spoken word and music.
  • Provide facilities in the interest of social welfare for recreation and other leisure time occupations, particularly in the neighbourhood of Bewdley for the benefit of the community.

We aim:

“To bring the best into Bewdley and to bring the best out of Bewdley”.

Thanks to the continued support and encouragement of the many Friends of Bewdley Festival, patrons, private donors and business supporters, Bewdley Festival has developed and expanded over the years to become an eagerly awaited part of the local calendar and has held an arts festival in the town of Bewdley every year since 1988. We aim to bring events to Bewdley which would not otherwise take place. Any surplus generated by our activities is either retained to ensure the financial sustainability of the charity or is re-invested in the arts.

Our charity is run by volunteers except for 1 part time employee.

The organisation and governance of the Festival has developed over time and we now have a two-tier structure:

The Council of Management

Festival Society Committee
