Thread Name: Beverley Folk Festival
Subject: RE: Beverley Folk Festival
Beverley realy needs an arts centre and its silly that we don't have one. Massive amounts are raised from us rate-payers in Beverley and Beverley sees very little back. The East Riding authority (who get nearly all the money) spend a lot elsewhere. Pocklington have a nice arts centre and Bridlington have a lot spent on various costly projects.
Norwood house is a lovely historic building close to the center of town. The picture playhouse wasn't saved but it's not too late to do something with Norwood House. If the current festival organisers move onto a different festival in a different place, an arts centre would be an ideal center for the organisation of events such as a traditional folk festival in Beverley.
We are writing to the Libraries, Arts and Heritage group manager at East Riding of Yorkshire Council. Anyone else interested in this? See www.norwoodhouse.org or www.beverleyhigh.e-yorks.sch.uk/norwood/
