Nailsworth Festival

Seb Choudhury in conversation

WSP sponsor local Nailsworth Festival

The Nailsworth Festival aims, for one week of the year, to bring something a little different to the cultural life of our community, providing something for everyone. In 2019, it will take place from 18th May to 26th May.

As ever, the Festival will kick off on Saturday with entertainment and market stalls in the town centre. There will be a wide variety of musical acts appearing in the evenings during the Festival. These include: the Real People, an indie rock band; the Elias String Quartet; country blues from Brooks Williams and opera from Opera Anywhere. There will be talk from John Bradshaw, a world expert in animal behaviour. On the second Saturday there will be the welcome return of the Lip Service Touring Company, with a new production.

As well as being a sponsor of the Festival each year, WSP was delighted this year, when the opportunity arose to sponsor a talk from Sabet Choudhury which takes place at Egypt Mill – Monday 20th May from 7.30pm. In conversation with Katie Jarvis, Seb will be revisiting his early life, as well as talking about his career in television journalism and exploring some of the stories he’s covered within the region. He’ll also be discussing his decision – four years ago – to donate a kidney to his mum, Sakina, after she became seriously ill.

These are just a few of the highlights – the full programme of events for 2019 and tickets are now available.
