Festival plans take shape
ARTISTS and musicians will have a chance to showcase their work if plans for a week-long festival in Portishead go ahead.
The town’s tourism group, which is spearheading the idea, is appealing for a co-ordinator to step up and help run a week of music and arts-related activities which they hope will take place in September.
Group chairman Ron Hazelton said: “We are calling upon all community groups to put on their own concert, production or exhibition during Portishead festival week but also need someone to co-ordinate the events and publicity.”
Organisers say they envisage the festival will become an annual event which grows each year.
Mr Hazelton added: “The festival week can start off in a modest way and then in time we can hopefully add events, activities and even competitions as the festival finds its feet.”
