Isle of Wight arts festival 'aimed at all ages'

Those taking their children on Isle of Wight holidays may find that an event celebrating a variety of arts is suitable for all the family.

The Isle of Wight Gazette reports that the Isle of Arts festival is fast approaching - it takes place this weekend (April 15th - 17th) - and the three-day gathering is aimed at people of all ages.

Celebrities such as Rich Hall and Lesley Garrett will be appearing at the spectacle, along with numerous other "fabulous personalities".

The publication noted that organisers of the event are still keen to get volunteers on board to help work the seven venues dotted across Ventnor - which could prove a rewarding experience for those heading out on Isle of Wight holidays.

People who sign up will get a unique behind-the-scenes view of the festival during their four-hour shifts, the source added.

The Isle of Wight County Press recently reported that DJ Yoda has been added to another of the island's upcoming music celebrations - the performer is to headline the Sunday night of the Jazz in the Meadow weekend at Ventnor Botanic Garden in May.
