More acts announced for Isle of Arts

Another batch of performers have been announced for the upcoming Isle of Arts festival, including respected writer and BBC DJ Stuart Maconie.

Gillian Jenner, a spokesperson for Isle of Arts, told the Isle of Wight County Press: "His work has been compared with that of Bill Bryson, Alan Bennett and John Peel and he has been described as a 'national treasure’ by the Times."

Mr Maconie will be joining an array of artistic talent at this year's event, including comedian Alan Davies, Ska band The Skatatonics, jazz guitarist Femi Temowo and journalist and broadcaster Sarfraz Manzoor.

Set to take place in Ventnor from April 19th to 21st, the stage has also been set for jazz act Fleur de Paris to take part in the festival this year, with the band drawing on elements of 1930s, '40s and '50s jazz to deliver a stunning show that music lovers will not want to miss.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801538534-ADNFCR
