Welcome!

International artists, returning favourites and quirky twists on the classics characterise this year's festival. The underlying theme is War and Peace - explored in an uplifting and inspirational way across the art forms. We reflect the anniversaries of Tallis, Tippett, the Battle of Trafalgar and the end of the war in Europe. However, the accent is on fun, so we begin by Singing in the Streets on the opening Saturday and finish in true Irish style with a ceilidh on the final night.

Thanks to all who have helped - particularly Make It Real and new sponsors Reeves & Newlan, Holiday Extras, Barwicks and Girlings.

See you at the festival - I'll save you a dance!

Rosie Turner
Festival Director
