The 2015 Isle of Arts festival will run across the whole early May bank holiday weekend, with events starting late Friday afternoon and finishing on Monday evening. Make sure you put the dates in your diary and sign up for our newsletter here to be informed about acts as they are confirmed.
Our other exciting bit of news is that after five years we will finally be able to hold our headline events in the Winter Gardens, instead of a marquee! The Winter Gardens was closed by IOW Council in 2010, but the building is now in private hands and is being repaired and renovated. We will be glad not to have to worry about high winds, rain and soggy ground playing havoc with our festival plans….The Winter Gardens is immediately next to the land where the marquee has been situated the last four years so festival goers will not have to go out of their way, and all other venues will still be within easy reach.
This website will gradually change over the coming weeks as we firm up plans for 2015 and we hope you’ll come back and check on our progress. As always, feel free to contact us with any queries or suggestions via the contact page or the dedicated get involved pages.
