Now running for over thirty years, the Devizes Arts Festival brings together a diverse, eclectic mixture of the best in music, literature, comedy, and all the performing arts, meaning there’s always something for everyone.
The main festival begins on Friday June 10th with Lesley Garrett’s ‘A Diva and a Piano’ at the Corn Exchange theatre. You can join Britain’s most popular soprano for a delightful evening of song, reminiscences, and chat. Lesley’s behind‑the‑scenes stories and anecdotes will give audiences a unique insight into her life on the stage.
The festival also includes appearances by famous British Gardner Adam Frost; one of contemporary British fiction’s most famous double-acts, Nicci Gerard and Sean French in ‘Meet Nicci French’; Britain’s leading travel commentator and a charismatic speaker on the adventures and misadventures, Simon Cadler, as well as Sophie Hannah, who is a Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling writer of crime fiction in ‘Agatha, Poirot & Me’, to name a few!

Since the festival is organised and managed entirely by volunteers, supported by the Town Council and local businesses, in addition to the main festival, a programme of free fringe events takes place in pubs, clubs, and churches across the town.
There are also two 'Festival Walks' taking place on Sunday 12th and 19th June, which will give guests an opportunity to explore the Caen Hill Flight of locks and the nearby Jubilee Woodland, guided by volunteers from the Canal & River Trust.
