An exciting three day celebration
of local talent and creativity
in the heart of Buntingford
The first ever Summer Arts In Buntingford Festival is to be held on 17th, 18th, and 19th June 2022. The three day event will be held in Layston Court Gardens.
FREE DAYTIME EVENTS
During the day come and soak up the wonderful ambience of the gardens with a wide variety of stalls and day time events from 10:00 to 16:30.
There will be on-stage performances featuring local talent of all ages; local arts and craft stalls providing demonstrations and a chance to try something new; a programme of events for children and locally sourced catering offering food from around the world.
Performing Live this weekend
Everything changes in the evening! From 18:30 to 22:00 the gardens will host a vibrant exciting range of live music outlined on the poster below. There really is something for everyone.
On Friday evening hear the beautiful voice of Buntingford's own TJ and see Fused, winners of the recent Battle of the Bands contest play with youthful energy and passion. Then take a trip down memory lane with the sounds of the 60s provided by the Swift Beats.
Saturday night is party night! Come and let yourselves go to the sounds of the Jersey Boys and then Miami Royals.
On Sunday the music changes direction again. Enjoy soothing chart topping folk music with Hannah Sanders and Ben Savage.
Entry to the evening events is by ticket only. Tickets are £10.00 per person for each evening.
Tickets can be purchased online or through Keith Ian Estate Agents on the High Street.
Just the ticket
If you need a helping hand to purchase your digital tickets, pop in to Keith Ian on the High Street and staff will happily help you through the process.
Arts and Crafts
Like music, art has an important place in our community. Come and enjoy the incredible aesthetic and inspiring beauty displayed around the gardens.
Food and Drink
What could be better than live music and amazing arts and crafts? We know - Food and Drink!
We have a range of tantalizing food and beverages that will satisfy everyone’s taste buds.
Battle of the Bands Competition
Congratulations to Fused from Bushey for their outstanding performance in our contest.
They were presented with their prize by Alex Trenchard, founder of Standon Calling.
We look forward to seeing them open the Festival on Friday 17th June.
Many hands make light work
The aim of this festival is to bring Buntingford together and show what is possible in our local community.
If you have free time, it would be great if you could volunteer a few hours of time over the event weekend to make it possible. All skills and abilities welcomed!
What's on for the kids?
As well as an array of talent to watch and listen to from the stage, your children can get into the festival spirit with beautiful make up and air-brushed tattoos, art workshop classes and various demonstrations.
There will also be a quiet area if you need to take the energy levels down a gear or two and take time out to listen to a story with your children.
