Bewdley Festival 2013, the 26th to be held during October, lived up to the reputation of its predecessors by bringing a wide range of top class and highly entertaining acts to the town.
Dave Collins, the Festival's publicity manager, commented
“It never seeks to amaze me how quickly such an event-packed week passes. No sooner are audiences leaving one venue, than they are pouring into the next. An eclectic mix of twenty events, six of which sold out within days of Festival’s launch back in July, as has next week’s Party Night. Culture, comedy, music, drama, history, food and art all featured, and all at an extremely high level – and the Festival’s two exhibitions at the Museum and at the Library continue into November.
We are all very pleased with the success of this the 26th Bewdley Festival. Thanks go to all who attended and particularly to all the Festival volunteers who made it happen. This year’s Eat Bewdley Raffle raised a record £2,948 towards funding future Festivals, thanks to the generosity of the many local businesses that provided no less than 70 prizes.”
