Ryde Arts Festival has been officially kicked off and is now in full swing.
Head to Ryde today and over the next week to catch a wide variety of arts events, from theatre, to live music, art exhibitions and more.
People in the Basement
Please note that the live music event hosted by Puzzle Muteson, People in the Basement, advertised in the printed programme as taking place tonight (25th June) will in fact take place Saturday 2nd July.
Instead, tonight The Depozitory welcomes a new comedy performed by puppets for local people who like local things.
Ventnor Exchange’s riotous new comedy explores the high glamour of local news as we go behind the scenes at Diamond Radio. Not afraid to tackle the big issues over breakfast or afternoon tea with a side helping of crumpets, classic tunes, hilarious anecdotes and award winning banter. It’s bound to be a hit, just like the tunes!
From little SEEDS
Head to The Depozitory today for the opening of the SEEDS exhibition.
Curated by FOAL Arts, this exhibition of smallscale works, sketches and maquettes by selected artists, has already received a great write-up from the Arts Council.
Join the Mardi Gras
Part of nationwide Shakespeare 400 Anniversary celebrations, and taking place today (Saturday 25th June), the New Carnival Company presents, A Shakespeare Mardi Gras: All the World’s A Stage – starting at 3pm and running until 7pm.
And there’s more
Head to Ryde this week and you’ll find plenty of Ryde Arts Festival events taking place around the town.
Support your local arts scene, a little bit of beauty and joy in your lives can make the world of difference.
