2014 Broadway Arts Festival, Friday 30th May to Saturday 14th June
'Changing Times'

Celebrating Art and Education in the Show Village of England, the 2014 Broadway Arts Festival will be held in and around the village between Friday 30th May and Saturday 14th June 2014. The theme for the 2014 Festival will be 'Changing Times' and looks back 100 years to the era before the First World War. Referred to by many as a Golden Age it was also, as reflected in the BBC television series Downton Abbey, an era of social unrest, women’s suffrage and industrial strife.

The new Ashmolean Museum Broadway will be hosting a special exhibition of John Singer Sargent’s work that has not previously been seen by the general public. The museum is an exciting addition to Broadway, further enhancing the village which, since the days of the Broadway Colony of Artists, has developed an international reputation amongst those who love the arts, music and beautiful places.

Amidst the charm of Broadway, where the evening light still reflects from the same beautiful stone buildings that have attracted so many artists and visitors over the years, ‘Changing Times’ will present a selection of art exhibitions and master classes, talks, garden tours and musical events and seek to look more closely at that tremendously important era of England’s past.

As part of the Imperial War Museum's Centenary Partnership, the men commemorated on the war memorial who lost their lives in the First World War are being researched and a book of commemoration will be published in early 2014. For more information visit Broadway Remembers.
