Welcome To WemsFest

WemsFest is much more than just an arts festival. We regularly organise individual concerts, we staged a massive commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, have commemorated Emsworth’s connection with P G Wodehouse annually for the past 3 years, and were behind Emsworth becoming The World’s First Ever Red Nose Town in 2015 – raising over £15,000 for Comic Relief – working in partnership with Emsworth Business Association.  This event will return in March 2019 – so come and ‘be funny for money’ !!

We are a catalyst for arts activity and have recently established The Eclectic Music Club – which does exactly what it says on the tin !  Our ‘Up Close and Personal’ series at The Spring’ (Havant) has already featured Nick Harper, Charlie Dore, Chris Difford, and the Ric Sanders Trio.  In 2017 we have already had Chris Jagger with Kit Morgan, and Dave Hatfield, and have Jeff Lang (22/4), Julian Dawson (13/5), and Sean Taylor (13/7) scheduled. Future shows in the series are likely to include Eddie Martin, Carol Laula, and Darren Nauendorf with Jaimi Faulkner among others.

The programme for the last WemsFest, our 5th, is on this website – please check it out.  We’re already working on 2017 and have Fairport Convention confirmed for October 20, and await confirmation of Dervish for October 5.
