The festival aims to take music, art and theatre to the community by offering a whole series of concerts and workshops.


Under the auspices of the Festival a new initiative was launched to encourage local people to take up and instrument and beinaband.  The aim is to give people the confidence to go on to play in one of the local community orchestras.  We have a small but perfectly formed little band of strings, wind and brass and meet for a workshop once a month.   Most members are adults who have just started learning music, or those who have switched to a different instrument.  Whilst very good we are not quite ready to star at the Festival!  email:
