It was with much regret that the Trustees of The Church Stretton and South Shropshire Arts Festival decided to cancel the 2020 Festival, in view of the current pandemic. After 53 continuous years, this is not only a huge disappointment for the Trustees and the Festival Committee, but also for all our volunteers, our audiences, our exhibitors and for the community as well.

Running every year since 1967, our annual 2-week Festival takes place in late July/early August.

During our Festivals, which we hope will continue in 2021, we present a range of performance arts to suit all tastes, and also the Art Exhibition, which continues to grow, and attracts well over a hundred exhibiting local artists.

We have:

  • Classical music concerts
  • Contemporary music concerts
  • Drama
  • Free coffee concerts
  • Free organ recitals
  • Art Exhibition
  • Art-related Workshops

Church Stretton provides a fantastic base for a short holiday, while you are enjoying the Festival, with the town’s own interesting range of independent shops and eateries. Not far away, and easily accessible (even by train), are Shrewsbury and Ludlow, with their own unique attractions.

We look forward to seeing you here!

The Festival is registered as an Educational Charity Reg. No. 511905
