Well done to 14-year-old Hallam, who was approached to compose an original piece of music for a marching band to perform at Ryde’s two Carnivals this year.
Ryde Arts Festival
Ryde Arts Festival grew from the SEEDA funded Ryde Development Trust in 2001.
One of the Trusts aims was to stimulate the regeneration of the town through the arts.
The Festival returns each year, bringing more live music, theatre, art and more to the town for Islanders’ enjoyment.
Below are some of the articles by OnTheWight featuring the Ryde Arts Festival.
Save your seeds and take them along to swap with others on Seedy Sunday. There'll be talks from experts as well as home-made refreshments and a variety of activities.

The launch event of the 2017 Ryde Arts Festival features the private view of an exhibition, a performance from dancer, Sophie Wintersgill, alongside live music from a string quartet, as well as the re-creation of the ‘Smashing Performance’ shown at the Saatchi Gallery by Sue Pareskeva.
The Ryde Arts Festival returns once again with a bumper programme of events. There really is something for all the family, workshops, exhibitions, poetry tea parties, live music and more. Keep the dates free in your diary and head to Ryde from 30th June to 9th July.
