Easter Festival 2016 -
Huh. Having looked up recent post-
After 43 years of cherishing this multi-
David, an internationally renowned musician, immediately “got” the place and the Festival (not always easy) and will return next year, both as conductor and in the role of artistic director, no doubt taking the Festival to even greater heights. That programme is being hatched as you read this, with many delights in store – final details will be published here towards the end of this year.
The mix of rising young stars and internationally established musicians augurs well for the future of the Festival and I am so grateful to all who took part this year (and down the years), and to the packed and appreciative audiences. Special thanks must go, too, to the committee and the support team without which we would founder – food, beds, chair moving, car parking, coffee making, child minding (the crèche this year decorated the altar magnificently for the Final Eucharist), ticket selling, treasury, publicity, music hire, parties, the Art Exhibition, general trouble shooting – all provided with efficiency and good humour. And we are indebted to the hospitality and blessing of the Rector and the Parish, AND to Dr Rowan Williams for leading our Festival Eucharist and adding serious magic to that service. Thank you.
One can only ask these folk to come, and, miraculously, most said yes, and helped to create another happy and inspirational Festival – regardless of extreme weather, it was, undoubtedly, one of the best ever. Join us in 2017 for a repeat experience………..
