Always enjoy getting involved in community events and love to see the festival emerge each year in ever new and surprising ways!
I joined the BVAF Committee a little after moving to Shrewsbury in 2018 as a way to get involved in the amazing community arts event and to get to know people. I used to teach art, but love anything that allows me to be creative and spending time in my garden
Treasurer and general volunteer
I joined the committee because I love the way it uses creativity to bring a community together. Although I’m not very creative myself, I appreciate anyone who is, and I am always amazed by talent on show in Belle Vue
I help with school liaison, our pub quiz, and other bits and bobs where I can. I'm an audio engineer and composer working from my garden studio in Belle Vue on pre-school TV shows.
Art Workshop Organiser
I'm an art teacher first, artist second, inspiring children to create art in a wide variety of media
Art Exhibition Organiser
I love creativity in all of its forms, especially when it brings people of all ages together. I particularly enjoy drawing, painting, singing and the theatre
Volunteer Co-Ordinator, and Competition Prize Organiser
I joined the BVAF Committee when I moved back to Shrewsbury several years ago. The Festival combines so many of the things that I care deeply about: the arts, music, gardening creativity, community and above all, friendship
A privilege to join the team at the BVAF having just returned to Shrewsbury from 17 years in Scotland working as a lecturer at the Glasgow School of Art. I am now painting full time in my Coleham studio.
Festival Photographer, Instagram Competition, and Photography Workshop.
I consider myself very lucky to be part of this fantastic community arts festival and being able to give something back to the town I’ve grown up in.
