I see from the front page of the Abingdon Herald that the Abingdon Arts Festival 2013 is Off. Not enough money! A quick look at google images (above) brings back some of the memories.
I am always impressed by the Abingdon Arts Festival Brochure (above). The website is equally good. Both are the work of Mike Ward. Mike has given his services for free for the town of Abingdon. As has Malcolm Ross who has co-ordinated the arts festival for 14 years. As have many other volunteers.
Over the years, The Abingdon Arts Festival has given this blog much to report on at the start of Spring. Next Spring could get a slower start without those two weeks of: art, theatre, films, big crazy community events, photographic competitions, music, and celebrities.
