Spring Garden and Studio Trail
1-3 May 2021
A biannual weekend of wonderful Spring gardens including nationally significant local gardens not usually open to the public. Several open artists studios are incorporated in the programme as well as garden sculpture. Refreshments available. The 2021 programme includes Stancombe Park.
5-8 February 2021
Rarely has a Wotton event captured the imagination as did the inaugural February 2020 Wanderland. The 2021 dates are set - now with four days to walk the town and see how everyone can use art and design to set out their ideas and entertain. The event is free and workshops are laid on for all entrants. We hope again for hundreds of adults and children to work together on brightening the town during the dark nights of winter.
I Love Wotton Carol Singing
Every December UTEA host an ‘I Love Wotton Carol Singing’ event in the Chipping hall. Sharing a little Christmas cheer, it's a great opportunity to catch up with friends and sing some seasonal songs around the piano. Everyone is welcome. It's free to attend with donations encouraged for a chosen local charity. Last year we raised over £500 for the local food bank. This year's date will be announced soon, arrive early, it's very popular!
Wotton Arts Festival
As a result of the latest Government advice we have decided to postpone this 50th Arts Festival at least until the Autumn, but most likely until Spring 2021. This is done with great regret, but we really have no choice.
Anyone who has bought tickets for any event is asked to retain them, and we will exchange them for new ones to the same event at the time the new Festival is organised. If there are real problems about this, please contact us via the form on this website.
Spring into Summer Festival
27 March 2021
An annual 18 hour celebration of the arts free to attend - music, dance, theatre, choir, painting, stories. Over thirty events spread over two venues; the intention is to introduce to the whole community the wide span of what is on offer at UTEA. Donations through the event. An annual joyous day at the turn of the seasons.
