Welcome to the Church Stretton Arts Festival website. On these pages we are pleased to present our 2018 Arts Festival – an event-packed fortnight, from Saturday 28th July through to Sunday 12th August 2018.

You will find 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
  • The ever-popular Tribute evening
  • Drama
  • Free coffee concerts
  • Free organ recitals
  • Exhibition 2018
  • Workshops

Evening performances start with our opening concert on July 28th and are on most evenings until our closing concert on August 12th.

Free Coffee Concerts are at 10.15am, daily, during the first week (Mon 30th – Sat 4th); organ recitals are in the second week, at noon (Tue 7th, Thu 9th and Sat 11th).

We also have an engaging talk by an author, and there is a tea-time concert, complete with scones, jam and cream afterwards!

Exhibition 2018 opens with an evening reception on the first Monday, and is then open all day, everyday, until the last Saturday. Always popular, with a huge range of art to look at (and buy), covering paintings, photography and a plethora of craft. We are also running two 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
