Already a popular and attractive destination, Holt is perfectly poised to host its first prestigious cultural festival for a week of dazzling summer entertainment.

The Festival has secured the interest of more than a dozen leading performers from the worlds of jazz, dance, theatre, opera, film, literature, poetry, comedy and visual art - events rarely staged in a rural region such as ours.

To encourage participation from every demographic sector ticketed events will be generously subsidised and main attractions will be augmented by a host of imaginative street performers free to all - concessions for young people and the unemployed will be available.

To coincide with the Holt Festival, Bircham Gallery will present a

an exhibition of Sir Peter Blake's latest work, part of a Rock 'n' Roll Tour of the UK which will coincide with a special visit by the 'Art Bus', a mobile gallery designed by Sir Peter Blake. The flamboyant and groovy converted double-decker bus will be in Holt for one day on Friday 7th August. Sir Peter Blake will be present!

'The Godfather of British Pop Art', is renowned for his connection with the music industry, having produced iconic album covers for The Beatles, Paul Weller, The Who and Oasis.

I attended the exhibition on Friday, the day Sir Peter Blake was present. The exhibition was wonderful. The art bus was so magnificent. It was a great achievement for Bircham Gallery to bring this distinguished artist to not just Holt, but to Norfolk. Brilliant arrangements and hospitality by Bircham Gallery. Thank you very much. I look forward to the next....APH
