Next week may see the last official day of summer, but the Spirit of Woodbridge lives on. With the sixth festival just two weeks away, organiser Jan Pulsford shares what’s in store.

“On Sunday 3rd October we’re hosting Spirit of Beowulf, digging up the link between Woodbridge, Sutton Hoo, and Britain’s oldest poem with a talk by leading authority Dr. Sam Newton, author of ‘The Origins of Beowulf’.  A Time Team historian and director of the study centre at Sutton Hoo, Sam will also demonstrate the beautiful Anglo-Saxon lyre.

“During the afternoon, which includes tea and cake, we also revisit the music, poetry, and art from the Beowulf Festivals of 2018-2020 with special musical guests AARTWORK and pianist Anthony Awad.

“Moving venue to the historic Bull Inn on Market Hill Woodbridge, a generous 10% off Sunday roasts on the day of the event is available to ticket holders. However, booking is essential so please email

The health and comfort of the audience is of paramount importance. The large room is well ventilated and access to the Bull’s spacious bars will be available.”
