ArtsFest 2017 – music and entertainment

ArtsFest 2017 started suddenly on Saturday, 15th July, with a song. Many have been surprised when ‘Voices Unlimited’, a singing group from Worcester, has started their programme in St Andrew’s Square. After the energetic start, town crier opened the event and audience had a chance to hear brief speeches from Mayor of Droitwich Coun Shaun Best and Nigel Huddleston MP.  

 

After a great start with ‘Voices Unlimited’, the music show continued with the performance of ‘Sing and Tonic’ choir from Droitwich.  

Arts Week: Guest poet Dave Reeves in Park’s Cafe

Arts Week is good opportunity for all local artists and DAN members to present their art, but it is always good to see what is going on around. Arts Week guest this year is a poet and performer Dave Reeves. Dave contacted us after he found out that his portrait, painted by American artist Cynthia Morrison, is a part of our Mail Art exhibition. It was not the first Dave’s portrait Cynthia has made and some of them were exhibited in the USA and Berlin. Dave joked that maybe one day he will be able to perform in the place where his portrait is shown. And, indeed, Droitwich was the right place.
