gives Highbridge Festival Of The Arts a cash boost
funds were raised for Highbridge's Festival Of The Arts when a
special fundraising concert was held on Friday (November 19th).
of supporters attended the 'Back In Town' Highbridge Festival
Soiree for an evening of theatre, music and dance at Rossholme
in East Brent.
by the festival's joint President, Chris Harris, the event included
performances by pianist Richard Lennox, The Lucy Gunter School
Of Dance and choral verse from St Joseph's School.
Chairman Jenny Hearn told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The evening
went very well and included some super performances. We hope that
a good sum has been raised for festival. When the final tally
is totted up it should be over £800."
said the finances for the 2011 festival, which starts in March,
are safe but that the 2012 festival "could be in doubt unless
more funding is found."
64th festival runs from March 2nd-11th 2011 at Burnham's Princess
originated in Highbridge in 1948 but has been held for many years
in Burnham-On-Sea and attracts hundreds of participants each year.
