Isle of Wight arts festival 'attracting top names'

People on Isle of Wight holidays are to have the opportunity to see a number of famous faces when attending a popular island event, it has been noted.

The Isle of Wight County Press reports that big names from the world of entertainment are to descend on Ventnor when it plays host to the Isle of Arts festival - which begins this evening (April 15th).

Art, music, comedy, photography, literature and drama are all to be celebrated at the gathering, the news provider explained.

It observed Blackgang-born author and actress Sheila Hancock will be in attendance and is to formally open proceedings tonight.

At the festival marquee in Salisbury Gardens, comedian Rich Hall and rock and blues band The Hamsters are to take to the stage, while star of the silver screen Edward Fox will headline the venue tomorrow when he presents the life and works of Anthony Trollope.

The publication recently reported that hip-hop act N-Dubz wowed the crowds at Ryde Arena earlier in the week.
