In the depth of winter, it's good to turn one's thoughts to the long warm days of summer.

For Wymondham's music lovers that also means looking forward to the annual Wymondham Music Festival.

In the depth of winter, it's good to turn one's thoughts to the long warm days of summer.

For Wymondham's music lovers that also means looking forward to the annual Wymondham Music Festival. Festival organisers arrange a public meeting early in the year for people to hear about plans for the 2008 Festival, talk to the organisers and put forward suggestions about the sort of music they'd like to hear.

This year the meeting will take place on Monday (February 4) in the Fairland Church Centre, Fairland Street. The meeting starts at 7.45pm although free coffee, home-made cake and live music will kick things off from 7.15. Everyone is welcome and entry is free.

The Festival committee is keen To Whom It May Concern: hear the views of anyone who wants to be involved, whether as a music lover, performer, supporter or advertiser. The meeting will be quite short, very informal and is open to everyone.

It's not just a meeting because, as in previous years, there will be live music. This year it is being provided by virtuoso guitarist Andy Kirkham from Norwich. Andy is no stranger to Wymondham. He performs regularly at the Festival, and has developed a large and loyal following with his skillful blend of classical, world and popular music.

John Wood, chairman of the Festival organizing committee, is excited about the 2008 Festival. “We're changing the format slightly for 2008.” he said. “We'll still be doing the things that everybody loves - the jazz picnic, the lunchtime recitals, the workshops and the free music in the market place, to name a few. But we're slightly altering the pattern of the Festival. We'd encourage anyone with an interest in their local community to come along to the meeting and find out more.”

For further information about the public meeting or the Festival in general, give Barbara Randall , events co-ordinator, a call on 01953 601939, or visit the festival website at www.wymfestival.org.uk
