May 2019 Festival



We are delighted to welcome you to the Wellington Spring Festival – a two 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 23rd 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 & Mayor of Wellington.





The Wellington Festival Committee wishes to thank the following, in no particular order, for the constant support and loan of venues each year, without which the Wellington Festival would not take place.  Special thanks must go to: Wellington Town Council, Wellington Library, All Saints Church, Wellington Methodist Church, the Church of the Latter Day Saints, The Belmont Hall, Creative Collections at Wellington Train Station and the Charlton School. Thanks also to the Shropshire Star; Wrekin News and BBC Radio Shropshire for the generous time and space allocated to help promote the Festival events. Thanks too, to the Friends of the Dothill Local Nature Reserve and 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.
