The Roseland Festival tickets go on sale today. With over 30 events covering all walks of entertainment, the fortnight’s calendar is packed with exciting treats from a TV celebrity talk about antiques from ‘Bargain Hunt’s’ Kate Bliss, to live concerts and films.
This year’s organiser is first time Chair, Andy Thomas from Philleigh. Andy told Roseland Online, “This has been a very exciting year for me as Chairman. I have previously been a committee member, but never realised quite how much work goes into setting up the Festival. Although I’m involved with other local clubs, the Festival has taken up all my spare time and more!”
The festival starts on Saturday September 21st with Rosa Rebecca, a Swedish songstress and musician, and will end with Catfish Keith’s workshop at Portscatho Memorial hall on 6th October.
Other highlights are a talk by Sian Andrews from Tate St Ives about Barbara Hepworth; music including the Roseland Community College’s Caribbean evening; Films like “The Wrecking Season”, “About the Land” and Roseland Online editor, Mark David Hatwood’s romantic Italian film, “Marcello Marcello“. There will also be cooking events, guided historical walks, concerts, quizzes and exhibitions, so something for almost every taste.
Andy added, “It has been hard work for all of us on the committee and we know we have produced a tremendous programme. Now we are looking forward to welcoming everyone to the Festival events.”
