Expect the Unexpected at Arts Wells Festival

artswells.jpg.jpgWells has always been a town vibrant of arts and culture. In the 1930s, musical acts were enjoyed in the very same Wells Community Hall where many of this year's shows and exhibitions are being held. Artists have traveled from across the country to this little mountain town to be part of this inspiring collaboration! Arts Wells is a 4 day outdoor & indoor festival designed with community in mind. Head over to the city of Wells and enjoy the weekend taking in great artists, the local flavour of nature trails, historical sites, artisans, and friendly folk!
