Artist in Residence
We’re delighted that 2018 is a new first for the Festival, with the appointment of James Budden as our Artist in Residence. James, who lives in Sherborne, will be painting at key events this year – do look out for him and say hello. Prints of his work will be available to buy online at the artist’s website after the event.
Award-winning Sherborne Abbey Festival is already renowned for its support of music in Sherborne, Dorset and beyond. We are delighted to be working closer with a local artist this year, creating original pieces of art that reflect the glory of the Festival’s unique settings and performances, which we hope to feature in our 20th anniversary programme in 2019.
