2020 Socially distanced Festival Events

As the Frome Festival has been put on hold this year, these are the socially distanced events which are able to go ahead this year:

The 2020 Frome Festival Summer Treasure Hunt

For those of you who have been missing our annual celebration of the arts and our community, in these socially distanced times, the Frome Festival has decided that the Treasure Hunt is one thing that is able to go ahead this year.


Treasure Hunt picture and clue sheets can be purchased and downloaded from the Frome Festival website for just five pounds by clicking this link.

So get equipped with your quiz sheets and start exploring the many fascinating streets of Frome. This year’s theme is the 20th Birthday of the Frome Festival. Annette Gabbedy, designer, goldsmith and winner of the Bath and Bristol Woman of the Year in 2015, has once again kindly donated the prize of an Annette Gabbeddy jewellery voucher worth £200.

As in previous years you do not need prior knowledge of Frome; just a pen, a sense of humour and a keen eye are all that are required; so why not stretch you mind and legs with a gentle stroll around our historic town?

We are delighted that quiz master Paul Hewitt has joined forces with local photographer Elisita Kemp and her daughter Valentina Kemp-Eddy with their intriguing photographs to create a quiz for everyone to enjoy. With the help of Black Ink Design, this year’s quiz will be the perfect way to explore our beautiful town and be in with a chance of winning the £200 voucher prize.

This year the Treasure Hunt will run until Monday 31 August, giving people plenty of time to follow the trail and find the clues. Winners will be announced the following week.

The Frome Festival Window Wanderland

In conjunction with the organisers of the Frome Window Wanderland we are asking the creative people  of Frome, of all ages, to decorate their windows, and create a Summer Window Wanderland. We’d like these to stay up until the end of August to brighten up our town, and add a little festival atmosphere.

The theme is the Frome Festival, and Anniversaries. This year would have been the 20th Birthday of the Frome Festival and this year is the 72nd Anniversary of the NHS.

As soon as your window is ready please email details to office@fromefestival.co.uk, and share your pictures with us on Facebook, we will add you to the list below, so so people can come and view your works of art.

Let’s brighten up the town, and spread a little joy!

The Frome Festival is a 10 day community arts festival which is run as a hybrid fringe. Many events are put on by independent event organisers and included in the programme. The festival itself programmes a selection of events and some organisers donate their profits back to the festival.  The success of these events contributes to continuation of the Festival. We do hope that you will support them.
