t’s Festival time and once again Cookham lays

Iout its store of talent to engage and entertain.

Our very first Cookham Festival was held in 1967

and over the years the scope and attendance has

grown such that the Festival is now the largest

community activity in the Cookhams as well as

being one of the major arts events in the area. We

attract more than 15,000 people over the duration

of the Festival and we have a policy of making

the ticket prices exceptional value and curating

a range of events for all ages: from bumps and

babies to our community’s oldest residents and

everyone in between.

This year is no exception. Music, as ever,

features prominently with everything from folk and

the Big Band sound, through pop and rock – the

latter at the now annual Let’s Rock the Moor - to

brilliant brass and classical choral pieces. And our

young primary school performers will be on stage

to delight us too, this year with a World Premiere

– Katie Cox and the Rhythm of the River, written

by local musician and composer Rob Castell.

And if that’s not enough we will be hosting a full

orchestral Family Concert featuring Peter and

the Wolf.

The visual arts also plays a prominent role

with the Sculpture Garden now a major national

attraction. The Cookham Arts Club has challenged

its members to Square Up to Cookham and

capture a moment in time on a 30x30 cm canvas.

You can also accompany Timmy Mallett as he

makes his epic painting pilgrimage by bike from

Cookham to Santiago de Compostela, and the

Festival will also be hosting an exhibition of photos

collected as part of the Wild about Cookham

Photography Competition. Art professionals will

provide expert guidance and tuition to all ages

over the first weekend in the Arts Hub.

We’re delighted that Richard James will

return for a one man show ‘The Seven Ages of

Shakespeare’ and will also be entertaining our

younger audience with stories from The Wonderful

World of Walliams! We will also be telling the

remarkable story of Holy Trinity Church’s own

Anchoress, holed up in a cell to pray for the sins of

Henry II. Plus, you can learn to dance and attend

numerous talks, poetry and the riotously funny

Festival Comedy Club.

This year, for your convenience, every event can

be booked online as well as by post and from The

Stationery Depot.

The Festival happens because of the time

and energy of many people in our community. In

particular the Festival Committee and an army of

Festival Makers who curate the events and make

it possible. Our thanks to them – and of course to

you – without which there would be no Festival.

Thank you.

Galleries has curated a fantastic

exhibition of outdoor sculpture. On

display in 2019 are the latest works by

both internationally known and collected

artists, and local sculptors.

This year’s exhibition boasts a feast

of extravagant colours, elaborate works

and exotic materials. Look out for kinetic

works, giant peacock feathers and oversized

coloured pencils.

Be inspired by the sculptures large

and small. With every piece on sale, you

are sure to discover a work that adds

a new dimension to your garden. Visit

www.thesculpturegarden.co.uk to see

participating artists.

The Festival organisers are grateful

to the John Lewis Partnership and

everyone at the Odney Club for hosting

the Sculpture Garden.

Purchases can be made on site or by

contacting curator Lucy Irvine

(mob 07976 612623,

email lucy@barngalleries.com).

The Sculpture Garden is open 4th -

19th May 10am - 4pm. Refreshments

are available.
