THE BRIGHOUSE ARTS FESTIVAL 2019
The Brighouse Arts Festival which will be held on 4th to 13th of October is delighted to announce that the headline act of this year’s event will be Lesley Garrett the famous Yorkshire singer. She will be giving a recital on Saturday 12th October at St Martin’s Church.
The organisers believe that her appearance in Brighouse is a Yorkshire exclusive. The show is entitled “An evening with Lesley Garrett”. She will be singing and talking about her glittering career in music.
Lesley’s major television appearances include Lesley Garrett…Tonight, The Lesley Garrett Show, Strictly Come Dancing, Loose Women and most recently a Songs of Praise Special – My Story, My Music with Aled Jones for the BBC. Lesley was also the subject of a South Bank Show on LWT.
For almost two decades, Kiki and Carmelo have been touring their spellbinding acoustic live show across the UK and Europe. Performing in this stripped back fashion allows each of their exceptional talents to shine through and create a wonderful and warm sense of intimacy for the audience.
2019 marks Kiki’s 56th year in the music industry and has cemented her status as one of the UK’s finest and most revered vocalists. Join Kiki and Carmelo for an acoustic journey of stories and song which include unique covers of songs by artists such as Kate Bush and Frank Sinatra and of course Kiki’s own hits “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, “I Got The Music In Me” and the stunning “Amoureuse”.

Our aim is to have a larger impact on the arts and community. After our successful arts festival last year, we are looking to develop on community and professional works presented at the festival. With new arts activities and high quality artistic events throughout our arts festival.
Our program of events includes theatre, music, literature, dance, photography and crafts. We will look for innovative ways of engaging with the public to introduce local people to great art; which will inspire and create activities which bring people together.
