The Curious Arts Festival takes place in the twenty-six acres of glorious grounds of Pylewell Park for the weekend 17th-19th July, deep in the heart of the New Forest in Hampshire. The weekend kicks off with the Authors X1 Cricket match and there follows three days of music, literary events, garden walks, snail-racing, poetry workshops and an extravaganza of curious and interesting experiences, from breathing lessons to hedge-foraging to puppet theatre-making; and there’s lots for children to do too.
Artists appearing include David Nicholls, author of One Day and Us, SJ Watson author of Before I Go to Sleep, Lynn Barbour author of An Education and Esther Freud author of Hideous Kinky and most recently Mr Mac and Me. Phil Manzanera from Roxy Music plays on the Friday night, John Illsley from Dire Straights plays on Saturday night, George the Poet, Britain’s foremost up and coming radical rapper plays on Sunday night. Surprise guest is Josephine de la Baume and Singtank.
