The Festival goes to School


At the end of the term, Katy Hewison (local dance artist) will come into school to deliver an inspirational dance workshop for all year groups, part of Wetherby Arts Festival Project ‘Connecting with children & young people’ . 

This year, the festival is outdoors taking place at the Tetley Ground (next to St James Church Hall, Wetherby) on 3rd, 4th & 5th September. There will be Opera & Chips, Children’s Day on Saturday (with dance event, family picnic & BadApple Theatre), Quiz night, Comedy Shows & a new Wetherby Showcase sharing local talent. 

We would love the community in Wetherby to come together at the organised Covid-safe events after such a year!  Get involved in the children’s dance team, showcase, or design a new poster/T-shirt!  Save the dates & look out for advertising coming soon to book your tickets to join us this September.
