  • About us

    We are organising this festival but we can't do it without you!

    Clare Perkins

    Co-Producer Beowulf Festival

    This festival is my gift to the town - for Woodbridge, by Woodbridge, to Woodbridge! I have always loved legends and Beowulf is an intriguing and amazing story which it appears may have been written near the town of which I was Mayor of Woodbridge 2017-18. The people of Woodbridge have historically worked with the River Deben and so this festival takes place on the banks of our beautiful river,

    Jan Pulsford
