Cracker of a Year for Perth Festival of the Arts


Perth Festival of the Arts is delighted to announce some of the artists who will be performing at the 47th Festival at the end of May.
Well known names Ruby Wax, Jools Holland, Marc Almond, Grimethorpe Colliery Band, Val McDermid, The Rev Richard Coles, Emma Johnson, Flying Bridge Theatre Company, Elephant Sessions, Fara and Hannah Fisher are all booked to perform.
On the classical front we are thrilled to have The Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra, Jennifer Pike, The Royal Northern Sinfonia, Lars Vogt, English Touring Opera, The Marriage of Figaro, a Concert of Rossini Arias, Tenebrae, The Scottish Opera Trailer and Peter and the Wolf. The stunning ArTay marquee will return too with its top drawer showcase of contemporary Scottish art.
Peter Rutterford, Festival Chairman said “This is only a taster as more will be announced in the coming weeks. Now that the fabulous Perth Theatre is open again we are able to programme more shows. We were last there in 2013. The Festival is also having a redesign by local artist Jill Calder so watch out for that.”
