October 2018 Festival



We are delighted to welcome you to the Wellington Spring Festival – a week-long celebration of arts, poetry, film and entertainment in the vibrant market town of Wellington.  The Spring Festival has a different feel to the more well-established October Festival, which is now in its 22nd year, however, it is still full of fun, excitement and inspiration.  I am extremely grateful to all of the Festival Committee who work tirelessly throughout the year to deliver it’s acclaimed programme.

Cllr Cindy Mason-Morris

Chair of Wellington Festival.





The Wellington Festival Committee wishes to thank the following, in no particular order, the below for the constant support and loan of venues each year, without which the Wellington Festival would not take place.  Special thanks must go to: Wrekin College, The Old Orleton, Wellington Library, The Telford Arena and Live Lounge, All Saints Church, Wellington Methodist Church, New College Telford, The Old Wrekin Tap, The Pheasant, The Belmont Hall, The Belfry Theatre and Wellington Registrar Office. Thanks also to the Shropshire Star; Signal 107, Free Radio and BBC Radio Shropshire for the generous time and space allocated to help promote the Festival events. Thanks too, to the many traders throughout Wellington and Telford, who have distributed the festival programme so consistently throughout the summer and early autumn months.  You have all helped communicate the message and we are forever grateful.
