Kenilworth set for festival

With Kenilworth Arts Festival almost here, organisers are preparing for a busy and inspiring 10 days.

Taking place between Thursday 20 and Saturday 29 September 2018, the festival promises more than 30 events around the historic town, from intimate gigs in beautiful venues and interactive workshops, to panel discussions and inspiring family activities.

Kenilworth Arts Festival’s Creative Director, Lewis Smith, describes 2018’s festival as “the biggest and boldest yet.”

Key performances include pianist Zoe Rahman (21 Sep), US musicians Jesca Hoop (28 Sep) and S Carey (29 Sep), plus a host of very special author appearances – from food writer Ruby Tandoh and nature writer John Lewis-Stempel, to acclaimed novelists Kit de Waal, Mike Gayle, Donal Ryan and Kamila Shamsie – that’ll keep any book-lover utterly engrossed.

Says Lewis: “With our third festival just around the corner, we’re really looking forward to welcoming people to Kenilworth for our one-off concerts, talks and workshops.

“We’ve got artists and audience members travelling to the town from all over the country (and beyond!), so it’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase the region at its best.

“There are so many highlights in our programme this year, from Erland Cooper’s concert in the 12th century St. Nicholas’ Church on Wednesday 26 September, to our Literary Weekend on Saturday 22 / Sunday 23 September, which will feature some of the UK’s most distinguished novelists.

“It’s going to be a very special ten days.”
