Arts centre to celebrate first birthday with festival in High Wycombe
A COMMUNITY arts centre is celebrating its first anniversary and is hoping to 'fuse' together the many different aspects of the town.
The Fusion Festival is at the Arts 4 Every 1 Centre in Desborough Road from October 26-27.
Organisers hope it will become a key cultural event in Wycombe's autumn calendar.
Sean Rourke, who helped organise it, said: "The title of the festival is intended to encourage 'fusion' in all its guises, celebrating Wycombe's cultural diversity, bringing our communities together and offering an artistic programme that is in itself a 'fusion' of art forms and ideas. In addition, we are championing many local priorities that support economic development and promote the town's commercial aspirations."
On October 26 at 6.30pm there will be the Wear it Pink/Scannappeal anniversary charity night and is brought to you by local firm TastertainmentTM.
Money raised will go to the Wear it Pink breast cancer and Scannappeal charities, who celebrate 10th and 25th anniversaries respectively on this day.
There will be gourmet pink food with various entertaining interludes, including music, dance, poetry, action theatre, martial arts and the evening concludes with an auction of art works. Tickets are £35 per person (or £300 for a table of 10). Further enquiries email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On the Saturday at 12pm there will be a lunchtime music, poetry and comedy special, from the Edinburgh Fringe. The Rhythm Method tour combines the wit and dubious wisdom of The Antipoet and the Milton Keynes' poet laureate, Mark Niel.
Followed by Drumojo-Wycombe's own drumming phenomenon in another high energy performance, including a specially devised "Fire Dance". Free entry.
There will be an exhibition of artists' work and full cafe and bar facilities.
Then in the evening at 7pm King Rollo's Fusion in Blues Band will perform. Tickets are £10. Doors open 7pm. Arts 4 Every 1 is a charitable organisation which runs the centre and is enabled through substantial support of Wycombe District Council and a host of volunteers.
It was opened to the public in October last year and has since been delivering many successful events, including the recent Made in Wycombe celebration.
