The Wisbech Arts Festival is back again this year with some great events and exhibitions to visit.
Many town locations are involved and the festival has something for every taste: walks, talks, children’s events, poetry and film.
This year there is an exhibition from the twin town of Arles, with professional photographer Patrick Urvoy bringing some of his work, entitled “L’Autre Language”.
The Luxe Cinema will be hosting films again, including Harold Pinter’s Go-Between.
Big Story Day at St Peter’s is a hit with the children and the walks and talks bring to life the rich history of the town and those connected with it.
