The Frome Festival is a community/arts festival which takes place over 10 days every July.

The 2020 event, which was due to see the Festival celebrate 20 years in Frome, was cancelled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

All fingers are crossed that the 2021 event will be able to go ahead, with plans for a full programme to celebrate the festival’s 20th (21st) anniversary.

Martin Dimery, Festival Director, says:

“We have a full Festival programme already beginning to take shape,  but a standby contingency that will allow safe-distanced outdoor events to run, including our ever-popular Hidden Gardens and also performances every night on the ECOS amphitheatre next to the Merlin Theatre. We are arranging for a canopy to be fitted over the stage to allow all kinds of events on ECOS to take place.

If all goes well and we have no Covid restrictions, the programme promises to be spectacular. Some acts have been re-scheduled from last year and others added. The Cheese and Grain already has six major artists provisionally booked and we’ll be announcing the line up as soon as we can. We are also planning a  Frome Festival exhibition at Rook Lane Arts, featuring an array of art and memorabilia from many of the wonderful past 20 years.”

Details of the festival will be posted here and on our events page when available. You can also find out more at the Frome Festival website.
