Springboard Weekend | 11 & 12 May

A brand new weekend of creative events takes place in Presteigne this May, celebrating the approach of summer and looking forward to the town’s annual Festival of Music and the Arts in August.

We’re delighted to host a super mix of events – some free of charge – celebrating spring’s passage into summer.

Contributors to the programme include Ian Marchant, The Radnorshire Wildlife Trust, The Pressgangers, Sue Harris, Nicholas Murray, George Vass and Dr Toby Driver, author of The Hillforts of Iron Age Wales (Logaston Press).

We also share a film exploration of Gustav Klimt’s iconic painting The Kiss from Exhibition on Screen, and welcome fabulous Dutch violinist Emma Roijackers and exciting young British harpist Heather Brooks, who perform recitals of well-known classics at St Andrew’s Church.

Saturday May 11 sees Presteigne’s lively shops supplemented with Broad Street Brocante, 9.30am to 2.30pm, plus live harp music in Presteigne Library.

Throughout the weekend, Ruth Kirkby and Penny Hughes open Art in the Yard behind Daphne’s Pizza, with creative events and displays for droppers-by, 10am to 4pm, on both days.
