Art enthusiasts chance to get arty at autumn fair
12:30pm Tuesday 16th October 2012 in News
ARTS enthusiasts are being encouraged to visit an annual arts fair being held in Bromsgrove this month.
Bromsgrove Arts Alive (BAA) is holding its autumn fair at North Bromsgrove High School, in School Drive, on Saturday, October 20, between 10.30am-3.30pm.
BAA is an umbrella group through which nearly 50 town arts associations and individuals, including the Artrix, Avoncroft Museum, Glamba, and All&Sundry, are all brought together.
BAA is dedicated to promoting the interests of its members, and promoting the arts in general in Bromsgrove.
As well as craft stalls, where visitors can buy jewellery, pottery, woodwork items, and original art works, the event will include stands representing amateur dramatics, local orchestras, and dancers.
Stage performers will include Fairfield and Step on Board Appalachian Dancers from Bromsgrove Folk Club, Glamba Theatrical Percussion, Chaddesley Strings and Chaddesley Junior Strings.
The day is set to be brought to a spectacular finish with The Big Sing, where everybody will be invited to sing well-known songs to live backing music provided by teacher Steve Cowperthwaite, and the school’s musicians.
Words to the songs will be projected on the opposite wall for all to follow, and participants will be invited to make a donation towards local charities.
For more details about the event or on the group, including how to join, see bromsgroveartsalive.co.uk.
