The the idea for a Rushlake Green Arts Festival was the brainchild of the late Chris Liddiard who was, as many will remember, a much loved and hugely talented local artist, musician and song writer. The idea was deceptively simple, but quite challenging for a small community to make happen. Chris was well aware of the incredible range of artistic talent and creativity that is at the heart of the communities around us: all forms and genres of music, theatre, the visual arts, poetry, craft making, photography, literature and much more. So Chris said ““why don’t we get everyone together to create a little festival where all these amazing people can work together to create something special that the whole community can enjoy and in many cases take part in.”  So it was that Rushlake Green Little Arts Festival was borne.
