The performers came, thousands turned out and Frome Festival celebrated ten glorious days in its 10th anniversary year.

Festival director Martin Dimery said: They made us laugh, they touched our hearts and we, the people of Frome and the many hundreds who visted the town, made them feel special.

We had more events, more ticket sales, and more major acts than ever before.

The festival has turned our limited public funding into a virtue, balancing the books by presenting popular shows alongside more challenging work.

I owe a huge debt of thanks to my colleagues and the volunteers who helped bring this remarkable celebration together.

In its first decade, the Frome Festival has established itself as the most diverse and successful community arts festival in England.

I look forward to the future of the Frome Festival with great optimism.



One of the best multi-strand festivals in the country

Frome MP David Heath, who went to several shows, said the festival had become part of the ethos and culture of the town.

From my experience, visitors who know and love going to Bath are delighted when they discover Frome.

The festival has become a successful part of the process of introducing the town to a wider audience.

I suspect few other market towns this size in the UK could boast the calibre of acts that visit year on year.

The festival brings real economic benefit to the town and I wish it every success in the future, he said.
