Festival unites


artistic community C


reative local people are gearing up for a bi- annual festival in celebration of all things


arty – from crafts and poetry to plays and concerts. The 11th Abbots Langley Festival of the Arts


takes place from Sunday, June 10, to Sunday, July 15, and will feature more than two dozen community events and a diverse variety of entertainment. This year‘s festival is being organised by


village resident John Sutton, who has planned the event since 1991.


‘There can be no excuse for your


not coming to the festival – there are many, many varied and interesting events to see’


John told My Abbots News: ―We‘ve got lots of


new events and lots of things for children to get involved with. ―It‘s always an exciting time and very popular. It‘s great to see people get together from various

local societies including the Gilbert and Sullivan Society and the Abbots Langley Players.‖ There will also be music in abundance with


two bands, one brass and the other a jazz quintet, performing as well as the local orchestra and singing by both children and adults. Flower displays, poetry readings and plays will


also feature in the festival and residents will have the chance to try their hand at various arts and crafts or even make a scarecrow. Historians are even catered for with a rare chance to see old maps, books and photographs linked to the village. ―There can be no excuse for your not coming to


the festival – there are many, many varied and interesting events to see,‖ John added. Festival brochures will be delivered


throughout Abbots Langley in early June. Fo r fur the r info rmat i on emai l
