The first Sutton Festival of Arts is launching on 9 July and carrying on to 13 July with the majority of events taking place in Saturday 12th.
Jon Hickman, the chair of the organising committee has picked out these highlights:
- Niall Johnson hosts a showing followed by Director’s Q & A of his film ‘Keeping Mum’ which stars Rowan Atkinson, Kristin Scott Thomas and Maggie Smith (as well as everyone’s favourite surfing zen master Patrick Swayze)
- The world’s biggest selling Bhangra performer, Malkit Singh (fresh from receiving his MBE) headlines our main stage in Sutton parade on Saturday afternoon
- Ian Cook is doing a demo of his Pop Bang radio controlled art
- There’s jazz, blues, a member of Scooch and a plethora of local noise merchants and indie bands performing in the pubs around town for the whole week
The programme is only available as a PDF download on the site (boo! hiss!) so I’ve stuck it on Scribd for all to see.
If you fancy being a volunteer, I think they’re still looking for help so get in touch with them.
