This year’s Hungerford Summer Festival has come to an end after a truly eclectic range of events packed into its two-week programme.

There have been much-acclaimed theatrical performances from the Community of Hungerford Theatre Company plus their Children’s Theatre and Youth Theatres, as well as free events, workshops, walks and the opportunity to view a showcase of local art at the Hungerford Summer Festival exhibition at the Hungerford Hub and Library.
Hungerford Summer Festival chairman Fiona Poole said: “What a busy couple of weeks it’s been! We’ve had a fantastic festival this year which is due to everyone who supports us from all of our sponsors, to performers to our wonderful volunteers, the superb venues around the town and of course the audiences who come out and participate.
“We’d love to hear your feedback on the events of 2019 as we’re already planning next year’s festival!”
