A huge THANK YOU to the many people who supported ILF 2022 (May 21 to 28), making it yet again a highlight of Ilminster’s annual calendar.  Please go to our Gallery page to see photographs from the Festival, as well as highlights from previous years.

Please let us have your thoughts – your opinion really matters

As we start to shape the programme for ILF 2023, feedback on what you would like to see would be great. Please spare a few minutes to complete and return a short questionnaire and encourage family, friends and other contacts, if possible, to return one too.
