I joined the Belle Vue Arts Festival as I wanted to be more involved in my local community. It's so rewarding to see so many people taking part and enjoying all the activities held throughout the fortnight. A smile on a face makes all the hard work worth it! Love walking and Scotland too.

I love creativity in all of its forms, especially when it brings people of all ages together.

I joined the Belle Vue Arts Festival when I moved back home to Shrewsbury in 2018.  It's a great way to meet interesting and friendly new people, and give something back to the community.  I am a passionate believer that art is for everybody!

Festival Secretary

Tony Sharpe

I have always been enthusiastic about the Arts in general, and visual art in particular. Now, I am “retired”, this phase of my life has given me space and time to paint, and to take photographs. I love colour, Shropshire, trees, fish and people. 

Art Exhibition Organiser

Tom Supple

I enjoy being involved in community events and helping to make things happen.

Lots of interests, particularly wildlife, the arts, rugby and snorkelling!
