Nigel Kennedy among big names in this year’s Bury St Edmunds Festival
The 2016 Bury St Edmunds Festival brochure will be launched at The Apex next week.
Tickets for the event, which will run from May 20-29, will go on sale on February 29 (February 22 for Festival friends) offering opportunities to see internationally renowned artists alongside home-grown talent.
Highlights include violinist Nigel Kennedy, Irish country star Nathan Carter, choral pilgrims The Sixteen and the winners of BBC2’s Naked Choir competition Sons of Pitches.
Local talent will also be in the spotlight with opportunities for folk, jazz and classical musicians, art students and schoolchildren to play their part.
Festival manager Nick Wells said: “I am really looking forward to announcing this year’s programme. As always there are a few surprises and opportunities to try something new alongside some festival favourites.”
Brochures will be widely available from next Friday (February 19). For more details, visit www.www.buryfestival.co.uk
