Arts Festival 2015


Welborne Arts Festival 2015

“Art Meets Science”


For 2015, the Welborne Arts Festival theme was ‘Art Meets Science’.  A mix of Art and Science with workshop topics ranging from Volcanoes and Earthquakes to Coastal Erosion taking place at various local schools both before and during the festival itself.

The local school based workshops in Barnham Broom, Mattishall and Yaxham, produced outstanding work on a range of topics all thanks to support from local people, personal sponsors and Ernest Cook Trust.  Thanks go to the students who produced a mix of art and science displays including a reconstruction of a sea defence scheme, very topical for Norfolk!  Our thanks also to David Kerr, our artist in residence.
