3-day festival planned on the Isle of Wight

Individuals planning on heading out on Isle of Wight holidays this year may want to try and organise the trip so that it falls during the dates of a new festival.

The three-day event will take place from October 14th to the 16th in Brading and it is being launched to celebrate the artistic, musical and dancing talents of the island, the Isle of Wight County Press reports.

Several venues across the town will play host to the spectacle, which also aims to raise money for numerous projects in the local area.

Performers at the showcase will include the likes of harpist Lily Neill, The Isle of Wight Scottish Fiddlers, Old Time Music Hall and musicians Holly Kirby and Emily Scotcher.

The online publication explained: "A wide range of workshops will also be held to aid the feel-good factor, including yoga, keep fit, art classes, African drums, didgeridoo and morris, tap and freestyle dancing."

Last month, it was revealed that Jazz on the Meadow - a festival taking place on May 21st and 22nd - will feature The James Taylor Quartet and jazz singer Claire Martin.
