Arts Sunday comes to town

Sunday 14th of August will see the Guernsey Arts Commission celebrating the arts that Guernsey has to offer on the St Peter Port seafront with Arts Sunday.

The free event, which runs from 11:45 until 4, will feature performances from mod rockers Last of the Light Brigade (who are soon to release their debut album), jazz group Tresami, as well as Festiva, Guernsey Festival and Community Choir.

Across the day there will also be workshops including an insight into “Invisible Theatre” with director and performer Farida Nasir and a look at being a one man band with garage folk performer The Crowman.

As well as the performances and workshops there will also be the Guernsey Arts Market which gives arts organisations and artists in Guernsey the chance to show off what they do, there is still space in the market so any artists and organisations get in touch with [email protected] to reserve a pitch.

Hannah Beacom, chair of the Guernsey Arts Commission’s Performing Arts Sub-Committee, has been leading the team organising Arts Sunday. She says: “Arts Sunday will be wonderful showcase of Guernsey’s talents. The public will be able to participate in workshops, watch performances from an eclectic mix of musicians, dancers, poets and actors and have the opportunity to purchase pieces of art. In addition, a number of the seafront restaurants and bars will be open throughout the day providing even more entertainment. The Guernsey Arts Commission hopes the event will offer an insight into the breadth of arts on offer in Guernsey.”

Performances and workshops begin at 11:45 and run until 4 and alongside the three performance and workshop areas there will be buskers and other entertainment throughout the day as well.
