‘Aberdeen’s oldest and original music, drama and dance Festival began life in 1909 and is still very much alive today ... The Festival adopts the motto of Sir Henry Walford Davies “Not to gain a prize or defeat a rival but to pace one another on the road to excellence”. The Festival is run entirely by volunteers and relies on entry fees, fundraising and sponsorship to continue to offer performance opportunities to musicians, singers and actors from the North East and beyond. The Festival takes place each year in the first week of June, in halls throughout the city. The Festival is not just for the performers. All events are open to the public and audiences are warmly welcomed.’

‘Established in 2004, Blackdowns Early Music Projects were principally conceived to draw together groups of experienced singers to work under the expert guidance of specialist music directors on programmes of infrequently performed early music (mostly pre 1720). Singers are invited from all over Europe and the UK to spend 3 or 4 days working together on music that is usually performed in a suitable venue in or around the Blackdown Hills, bridging the Somerset / Devon borders. Frequently the music is accompanied by specialist early music instrumentalists. The resulting choral concerts have become a mainstream event in the calendar for anyone who loves renaissance or baroque vocal music.’

'It was in 1987 that David and Linda Holmes founded a series of chamber concerts; these began at the Walpole Old Chapel, moving in 1991 to Cratfield. The creation and registration of a charitable trust, Blyth Valley Chamber Music, followed in 1993. By then the format of six fortnightly Sunday afternoon concerts was firmly established, though with some occasional winter extra concerts ... We aim in each season to combine well-known combinations of instruments for which there is an abundant repertoire – like the string quartet and piano trio – with less usual groups of instruments whose repertoire may therefore be smaller, but no less worth hearing. We also intend to offer in each concert enough of what could be called the "core" repertoire to give us a good chance of filling the church – ticket sales being our largest source of income – but to spice this with new or less well-known works.'
