History of the festival
The Wycombe Arts Festival was started 50 years ago. It is a registered charity, and is a non-profitmaking organisation. We solely rely on sponsorship from local people and organisations (these are credited where applicable in the programme). We also have a number of regular Patrons, (see list elsewhere on the website), who pay a minimum subscription - currently £24 - each year. Obviously, without this support, we would not be able to provide such a variety of events, so we would like to repeat our thanks to these organisations and individuals.
The Festival is organised entirely by volunteers, who work hard throughout the year to arrange a mixture of events across the artistic spectrum for our local community.
About Wycombe Arts Festival
Booking Hotline: 01628 483597 Focused in and around High Wycombe and Marlow in the South of Buckinghamshire within the Chiltern Hills, the festival offers a wide range of the arts, both amateur and professional. Its aim is to embrace and engage all members of the community.
2014 marked the festival's 50th anniversary. Each year, the festival includes a wide range of musical events including jazz, chamber and orchestral concerts, photographic and art exhibitions, theatre productions, National Trust walks, storytelling and talks on subjects of local interest and much, much more.
This large range of events reinforces the aim of the festival to bring a wide variety of performing and visual arts to the widest possible audience at a reasonable cost.
