Creativity, performance and dance will take centre stage this weekend as Bicester’s annual arts festival returns for an online edition with the theme ‘fire – keeping the flame alive’.
Despite the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, Bicester Festival organisers have worked hard to ensure the show must go on, with live and pre-recorded content scheduled throughout this weekend (Friday 18 to Sunday 20 September) streamed via the new website www.BicesterFestival.org
The curtain will be raised at 6pm on Friday with a mix of live and pre-recorded music to kick-start the weekend. Among the headliners are a cappella trio The SKEPTICS and the ever-popular Steve Winch & The Inception, bringing a high-octane vibe inspired by the likes of The Jam, The Stranglers and Elvis Costello.
Saturday showcases an eclectic mix of performances, including an interactive virtual Flash Dance led by Dance Creative, the vocal talents of local singer Yasmin Saint as well as a DJ set to entertain the audience as the sun goes down.
Sunday’s line-up starts with some morning yoga, followed by an interactive play for little ones called “Swish”. Produced by Moulded Theatre – experts in creating innovative and accessible children’s shows – Swish follows the adventures of Olive the tiny turtle as she tries to pick up all the plastic pollution in the sea.
The Bicester Festival is organised by a team of volunteers and supported by Cherwell District Council and Bicester Town Council.
