Bewdley Festival

From the first Bewdley Festival held in 1988 the aim every year since has been to:

“Bring the Best into Bewdley and the Best out of Bewdley”

through programming a mix of music, talks, comedy, drama and art, with performances featuring well-known stars, interesting personalities and local talent.

In 2024 we introduced two new events which we hope will become fixtures in our calendar:

One Earth Festival

The One Earth Festival - a one-day Music and Sustainability event for the entire family, mixing music with messages helping people towards sustainable living, and developed by Bewdley Festival, working with a team from The Bewdley School including students.


With great live music from over 20 acts.


A special guest, the amazing young environmentalist Dr Mya-Rose Craig.

Step into stories

Our annual one-day festival in April 2024 was packed full of some of the best authors, poets and storytellers in the children’s story world today. We had something for all children aged 0 – 12+, from picture books to poetry, detectives to inventors, story trains to storytellers and even a chance for over 16’s (including adults!) to learn a little about writing and telling stories for children.
