On 27th April, Wycombe Museum hosted a delightful exhibition celebrating local artist Lorna Cassidy's contribution to the festival from its first year onwards as both exhibitor and organiser. Lorna is pictured celebrating her 80th birthday!
The Wycombe Arts Festival is delighted to have appointed Colin Baker, local actor and recent star of ITV’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! as President.
British actor, Colin Baker is best known as Paul Merroney in The Brothers and as the 6th incarnation of The Doctor in the long-running science fiction television series Doctor Who.
Colin comments: “I am honoured and delighted to accept the invitation to be the Honorary President of the Wycombe Arts Festival. I already am well aware of the breadth and wealth of talent in the local area and also of the willingness of the local community to support local events and the celebration of excellence in all of the Arts, when given the opportunity. I hope that my own performing schedule allows me the opportunity to come along and enjoy at least some of the exciting events this Spring.”
John Beaumont, Festival Chairman, comments: "We are very excited that Colin Baker will be taking up this role as figurehead for the Festival and look forward to developing our relationship with him to take the Festival forward as we approach our 50th Anniversary year in 2014.”
