Looking ahead to Beaminster Festival 2019……

After enjoying a great 2018 Festival, we are already at work preparing for 2019.  Let’s just hope the Square is clear by then!!

We have some fantastic events lined up for you with most of the programme settled.

We are very excited to announce the appearance of the internationally famous tenor Mark Padmore, who will present a gorgeous programme with Morgan Szymanski, guitar.  Right at the beginning of her career is BBC Young Musician, 17 year old Lauren Zhang, piano; once more we feature a future star!  Many of you will remember the young curly haired clarinettist Emma Johnson, BBC Young Musician 1984, and she will be playing early 20th century jazz in her jazz trio. Pop-Up Opera was hugely popular and they will return with a typically lively and hilarious production of Rossini’s Il Turco in Italia.

Bound to be a sell out, the great Ben Waters and his band will be playing at the school.

There will be the biennial Art Exhibition in the Public Hall which attracts many people into the town and shows the brilliant local talent we have amongst both students and adults alike.

We will be working on engaging all members of the community, young and old, and very much hope that we can arrange lots of events for us all to enjoy.

Watch this space for further details of an immensely exciting programme!
