Posted on 08th February 2013

Salisbury is a fantastic city to visit whatever the time of year as it offers a great range of festivals and activities for the whole family to get involved with during their Wiltshire cottage holidays. Just one of the events taking place this year is the Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival, and many people are already getting excited about what could be on offer when it opens in May.

2013 is the event’s 41st instalment, and it promises to feature an eclectic mix of acts with everything from classical and world music events to international theatre, dance, film and visual arts, ensuring that it appeals to family members both young and old.

Six features have already been confirmed for the event, while the full itinerary will be unveiled on the 6th March. One of the highlights is sure to be a production of King Lear at Old Wardour Castle, which promises to be an enthralling performance of the Shakespeare tragedy.

Another event sure to prove popular is the appearance of The Tallis Scholars at Salisbury Cathedral, with the award winning renaissance singers set to deliver another of their acclaimed concerts to the audience in the beautiful setting of the cathedral. The Opera Project, a hugely talented UK touring opera company, will also be returning following huge public demand. Commemorating their 20th year of shows, it promises to be a fantastic evening of entertainment when they perform at the Salisbury Playhouse.

The 2013 edition of The Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival will return to the city from the 24th May until 8th June, featuring at a range of different venues. With all this and more to look forward to, it’s an event you will not want to miss out on should you be enjoying a stay in one of the holiday cottages in Wiltshire during the period.
