The Witherby Arts Festival, funded by the Trust, was designed to showcase the work of emerging artists. Recognising how few professional opportunities there are during the pandemic, all musicians were paid for their contributions and provided with a professional quality video of their performances to aid in their future careers.
The Summer season has come to a close and pre winter training has begun in the Turnhouse Camp. We had a busy summer with a number of Personal Best performances and podium finishes. The depth and experience of the group has grown massively. Turnhouse Hammer Academy has certainly established itself as one of the top throwing groups in the UK.
We look forward to another year of success with Witherby.
