EDAF celebrated its 49th year in 2019 and we had high hopes of managing a Golden Anniversary in 2020. However, that was not to be, and we now feel that we cannot run it again in the same way as before.
The support we have received over the years from local people helping to run it, cooking for it and visiting as well as from all the art and craft contributors enabling it to happen, has been amazing and very much appreciated. Obviously, the festival has greatly benefited Thorverton Church funds, but has also given an excellent platform to the exhibitors and brought so much pleasure to all our visitors who have not only enjoyed the exhibition and made purchases, but have met their friends and enjoyed super home-made food.
So we won’t be running the Festival again, but hope to have some smaller scale fund-raising activities in the future. These may involve craft sales or exhibiting art work, so we’re likely to be in touch with our ‘regulars’ if and when those happen.
