A taster of the Curious Arts Festival for those who've never been...
...and a reminder for those counting the days to Fri 20 July
Over the last month or so, the Curious Arts Festival team have been recording curiously compelling podcasts - in partnership with their friends at the Curious Brewery - exploring life, art and the creative spark with artists who have either been to the festival or will be joining for the first time this summer.
Live podcasts of Simon Evans, John Illsley and Dolly Alderton
Simon Evans, stand-up extraordinaire and festival-favourite discussing comedy, cryptocurrencies and curious ales with the inimitable Paul Blezard.
John Illsley discussing his life and inspirations as an artist and world renowned musician
Dolly Alderton discussing everything she knows about parties, friends, dates, jobs, life, love and podcasts!
Curious Arts is amazing value for people who appreciate literature and acerbic wit as well as the expected great live music of a Festival. The early morning news discussions and early evening comedy shows are a world unto themselves and as with so much about Curious Arts almost impossible to describe - they have to be experienced!

Alongside the packed programme of events, bookings are now open too for a range of fantastic workshops, masterclasses and other activities. Numbers for some of these events are limited so early registration is recommended - and you must buy your festival tickets to be eligible. (You will be asked to supply your ticket confirmation number at the point of booking.)
PS Don't forget to bring your canine companions for the Curious Dog Show on Sunday!
