With brochures now in wide circulation and ticket sales reaching records, the Frome Festival has added a few more events to the Festival programme. These events can be found on the Festival’s web site but, due to a technical problem, were not included in the brochure:
On Wednesday 6th July, Trinity Church present the ‘Famous Stained Glass Windows of Trinity’, from 7-9pm. There will be an opportunity to view the Burne-Jones Windows in the re ordered church, with a talk at 7.30pm. This is a free event, that doesn’t need booking in advance.
The highly regarded Frome Drama Club is presenting Peter Shaffer’s funny and touching one act play “A Private Ear” at the Steiner Academy on the 6th, 7th 8th and 9th July at 19.45.
An Afternoon Organ Recital will be performed by Phillip Pearce at St. John’s Church on Saturday 9th July at 3pm, featuring popular classics on the magnificent 32 stop Norman and Beard organ.
Amongst the many workshops available in the Frome Festival, “Read My Hips” at the Frome Dance Centre on Saturday 2nd July, offers an afternoon of dance workshops from around the globe. At 2.15, Raheesha presents Exotic Middle Eastern Dance; at 3.30 pm, Tribal Belly Dance can be tried out, and at 4.45, the Hawaiian Hula. Beginners are welcome to all.
