'A nationally renowned rural music festival where people from all walks of life experience and enjoy extraordinary music performed by world-class artists, in stunning locations. The Festival was borne out of the devastation caused by the Foot and Mouth Disease outbreak in 2001, which decimated the UK farming and tourism industries. John and Penny Adie, Devon locals, were inspired to help regenerate the local economy and bring light and encouragement to people’s lives by producing a week of stunning music-making on the "Two Moors" of Exmoor and Dartmoor.' Held Mid October.

‘The principal orchestra in the South West specialising in baroque and early classical music played on period instruments and in appropriate style ... In the spirit of a true Baroque orchestra, the size and composition of Devon Baroque varies. This reflects the demands of the repertoire, from a small chamber ensemble to a larger orchestra with wind players ... Devon Baroque relies on the financial backing of its supporters; Audiences, Individuals, Dartington Arts, and Grant making bodies like the Exeter & Devon Classical Music Trust ... Together, we can reach our goal of placing Devon Baroque at the forefront of exciting music making, concert giving and education work, not only in Devon, but throughout the South West region and beyond. We have great plans, creative ideas, and fabulous, highly skilled professional musicians.’
