Frome Festival

5 – 14 July

The Frome Festival has just announced its July 2019 line up and already hit an unprecedented demand for tickets.

Headlining acts include DJ Judge Jules, with a ten-piece live band in an opening night party on the Friday 5th July; followed by major indie act The Coral, on Monday 8th, and on Friday 12th July, the chart- topping Scouting for Girls, all at the Cheese and Grain.

The Memorial Theatre will present Danceworks, and perennial favourite, Cornish comedian Jethro. In a post- Festival “Encore” the theatre will also host The Drifters on Saturday 19th.

The above shows are all selling in advance of the Festival at their respective box office outlets and on-line. Although a small stock of tickets will be held back for sale in most cases for the official box office launch on Sunday 19th May, customers are advised to book early.

Perenial favourites include the Hidden Gardens, the Food Feast, the Open Studios, the Frome tunnels, and Small Publishers Fair. There are also lots of walks, workshops, free and family events. An exciting programme is planned by the Frome Venues, Churches and Pubs, and this year the Festival will present a Comedy Crawl for the first time. Comedians will be engaged to visit various bar or shop premises along Catherine Hill in rotation to expectantly awaiting audiences during the course of one evening.

The Frome Festival celebrates the 200th Anniversary of JW Singer and the foundry that dominated the Frome skyline for many years, casting some of the world’s most famous statues.
