Festival Fortnight 2017

The He Hews family concert at the Baptist Church on Sunday, July 16, brought the curtain down on Wymondham Music Festival Fortnight 2017. A whole range of venues across town hosted events, from classical music and jazz at the Abbey, to acoustic music at the Green Dragon, the sound of Wymondham Ukulele Group at the Methodist Church and a ceilidh at the Baptist Church. Not to forget the open-air venues with the Jazz Picnic at Becketswell, live music in the Market Place and the Teddy Bears’ Picnic on King’s Head Meadow.
Festival Chairman, Richard Elliott reflects on the Festival’s successes: “One of the top events was the Jazz Picnic with DixieMix, which attracted a near record audience on a perfect sunny evening. The Young Musicians’ concert at the Abbey was a wonderful occasion with 17 musicians all playing to a very high standard. It’s fantastic to have such great talent coming through in the local area.”
“Our ticketed events didn’t sell as well as we had hoped. But the audiences were treated to some top quality performances and all had a very good time. I was surprised and delighted with Luca Luciano’s concert at the Abbey. His contemporary clarinet music was superb.”
“It was good to welcome back the Squeegees, whose old fashioned entertainment was greatly enjoyed by an excellent audience. It was also lovely to see Wymondham Ukulele Group attract such a good audience for their lunchtime slot at the Methodist Church.”
“We are now going to take a break to reflect on Festival Fortnight, before developing our plans for 2018. I would particularly like to thank all our patrons, sponsors, supporters and volunteers for helping ‘make’ the Festival and look forward to working with you all again.”
