Droitwich ArtsFest enters fourth week

Last Saturday (14th) Droitwich arts festival not only provided opportunities for families and youngsters including the creation of a dragon, face painting, and art activities with salt, but also two sketching walks for adults. And all to the accompaniment of music and dance provided by pupils of Droitwich Spa High School. During the week three authors performed “30-40-60” a multi-media event comprising readings about Womanhood containing moments of both humour and sadness.

Artist in View

This Saturday (21st) sees the traditional “Arts in View” event in Victoria Square where members of Droitwich Arts Network will demonstrate their work and skills in a variety of art forms. There will also be prose and poetry readings through the day in St Andrews Square. Budding photographers can join a photo walk led by Droitwich Camera Club starting from Droitwich Library at 2.30pm. Any camera will do including tablets and phone cameras. Some additional surprises will be created by a close up magician who will move through the crowds late morning.

Photo walk in Droitwich High Street

On 13th of August the second photo walk of DAN photographers was organised by the member Rhys Jones. A group of enthusiasts from Photography Interest Group (known as PIGs) took a stroll from Queen Street down to the picturesque High Street. Soon after we split and everyone started to look at their own interesting spots to make a good shot.

Quirky old houses in High Street are real treat for any photographer. Although they are crooked as an effect of the brine extraction, they survived through the times and stand proudly leaning to each other. Beautiful black and white timber-framed ‘Spats Coffee House’ at No. 22 or sky blue ‘Fish and Chips Bar’ are just two excellent examples of Droitwich High Street architecture.
