From Shakespeare to the Lion King, the children pulled off impressive and entertaining performances throughout the afternoon of our first Walhampton Arts Festival. In true British festival style the rain poured down on our alfresco performers but it deterred neither the performers, nor the audience who donned wellies and waterproofs and carried on as planned. A wonderful atmosphere was created with food and drink tents, creative corners and a huge stage set on the front lawn.

The pictures speak for themselves and there's much demand for it to become an annual event!
