Thornbury Arts Festival

Thornbury Arts Festival is one of the longest running multi-arts festivals in the country and celebrated its 50 year anniversary in 2019. The 2020 Festival will be held from Friday 24th April to Saturday 2nd May.

Entirely run by volunteers, the Festival is an established part of the Thornbury calendar and the organising committee is also responsible for the annual Thornbury Eisteddfod - which celbrated its 30th year anniversary in 2019, and the Severn Vale Art Trail which showcases the work of local artists and which will run from 1st May to 10th May 2020.

The festival exists through the brilliant work of our volunteers, the backing of our sponsors and the ongoing support of our audiences, for which the committee is very grateful. We are continually looking for volunteers with an interest in the arts to join our team, and if you feel that you would like to become involved please email

The programme for the 2020 Festival will be revealed soon but the syllabus for the Eisteddffod, which will run from 8th to 15th March 2020 can be downloaded now - please click on this link: Thornbury Eisteddfod Syllabus 2020
