CORSHAM's Pound Arts has launched Blue Sky & Beyond – an exclusively online festival featuring a line-up of comedy, music, theatre, spoken word, workshops and visual artists.

"It has been important to us and to our customers that they still have regular access to these experiences. With that in mind, rather than miss out on our annual Blue Sky summer festival," said centre apokesperson Jonathan Mansfield.

Pound Arts Director Russ Tunney adds, “In lockdown, music, books and other forms of storytelling have kept me sane. In short, art has kept me sane. I am sure it is the same for everyone. We can’t bring art in person to our wonderful communities at the moment but with Blue Sky & Beyond we will bring it digitally and give people some memorable escapist moments to savour.”

The critically lauded contemporary folk singer Rachael Dadd returns via live Facebook broadcast to deliver an exclusive set. There will also be a music ‘stage’ featuring Pound Arts favourites, Broken Bones Matilda, Chloe Foy, Emily Barker, Lo Barnes, Mary Spender, Nuala Honan, The Little Unsaid, Tiny Ruins, and many more incredible musicians sharing beautiful songs from their homes.

The world’s original family ravers and now pioneers of virtual kitchen raves Big Fish Little Fish will invite you in for an afternoon of absolute bangers.

Rounding off the festival, on the Sunday you are invited to come and listen to poets. John Hegley, John Osborne, Liv Torc, Luke Wright, Molly Naylor, Rosy Carrick & Toby Thompson will be amongst those that feature.
