Bath Fringe Festival : BEDLAM FAIR June 4th & 5th 2016 New Work Works – Call for Performers Expression of Interest

Bath Fringe (and Streats Ltd.) has been running Bedlam Fair (the outdoor celebratory and street arts bit) for 25 years now. We've always liked to present and encourage new work and over the past few years have developed a programme to encourage and support new work / emerging artists in the sector and in Bedlam. Bath is well provided when it comes to sites for outdoor and intervention work plus our event is early in the season giving participants in the scheme a chance to find out whether the new work really works with a live audience ... while there’s still got time to fix it!
FUNDING IS NOW CONFIRMED and we’d love to hear from you if you think you satisfy some of the following criteria:
At an the early stage of your career;
Are already established but want to try out new work;
Are based in the SW;
Are from a community that is under-represented in the performing arts.

Letter to A Young Artist: John Fox

LETTER TO A YOUNG ARTIST           10th March 2012

Music: Dan Fox Trombone. John Fox Accordean


I wanted to start with that because it is the first tune WSI used and because I love playing with Dan. Its is a kind of symbol because part of my theme tonight is about the importance of our legacy and how much generations learn from each other. I learn a lot from Dan. He just taught me the middle part of the tune.

Anyway Hello. Thank you for inviting me and for the excellent dinner. Pete Gunson kindly suggested that I might to write a Letter to a Young Artist.

But how old is young?

I reckon there are a few folk here within knife throwing distance of a bus pass.

And how young is old?
