The Shrewsbury Biscuit Podcast: Belle Vue Arts Festival Opener 2023

Well here we are again, The Belle Vue Arts Festival 2023. When Alex talks about The Shrewsbury Biscuit, he always talks about it being like viewing Shrewsbury on and iPad (other brands are available) and you zoom in closer and closer until you find an interesting story. We have never found it difficult to find extraordinary people to talk about.

Events like the BVAF make it so easy to find interesting points of view, stories and inspiration all in one tiny little corner of the town. But this little event in this little area has hugely positive influence on so, so many.

In this podcast we cover the open evening of the exhibition at Mrs Jones Gallery in Coleham and we subtly bleed into the opening day of this festival. Held on the side on the river at the end of the Greyfriars Bridge, there was sunshine, music, activities and pants. Pants designed by school children as inspired by their favourite heroes.

‘Heroes’ was the theme here and we find heroes in many forms in this very podcast. From creative heroes like Christian Ward, Dan Berry, Mike Perkins and Louise Diggle, to community heroes of philanthropist kind, like Stuart & John from the Belle Vue community Action Group and the whole BVAF team. There are heroes to admire throughout this podcast.

Please, please, please take a look at the website for Belle Vue Arts Festival and help support this great event by turning up to the many events laid on over the next coming days. Here is the link –

I’d love to give you guys a nudge toward the open gardens, the scarecrow trail and the lecture mentioned in this podcast by Mike Marriot about the artist, David Inshaw. This is on the 14th June. There is a booking link right here –

This event means a great deal to me. I say it a lot in this episode. But I truly had just moved to Shrewsbury when I got invited on the Open Gardens Trail and I really did meet some wonderful people that just solidified my justifications in pushing The Biscuit like I do. In essence, these Salopians really are worth shouting about. – AL
