It’s Magic - Rye Arts Festival’s 2014 AGM

Around 90 Ryers who turned out on a wet and windy afternoon on Sunday 26th January were rewarded with news of the good results for last year’s Rye Arts Festival, exciting developments for the 2014 Festival and some up close and personal magic!

Rye Arts Festival’s AGM was held once again at Rye Community Centre under its brand new ceiling. And Chairman Ian Graham-Bryce was able to welcome the Festival’s Members with the good news that the 2013 Festival made a surplus that more than covered the previous year’s loss.

Ian thanked the generous sponsors. “Without whom we simply could not have contemplated such an ambitious programme,” he added. He also thanked all the members for their ongoing financial support, the huge number of people who give their time and premises to help the Festival, and all those people who buy tickets. “Forty paid-for events were put on which were attended by nearly 4,000 people.”
