Seaton - Branscombe Festival
Branscombe Festival: Friday 24 – Sunday 26 July 2015
An intense weekend of world class performance, in one of Devon’s most stunning locations, the Branscombe Festival offers entertainment for all.
A rich, carefully devised programme of classical music, opera, jazz, Broadway standards and military band promises to delight and excite audiences.
The Branscombe Festival is fast making a reputation as one of the South-West’s key cultural events; artists who regularly top the bill in London and New York perform in the intimate spaces of a village hall and church, attracting music lovers from the local community and across the region.
A village festival set on an international stage, Branscombe is a truly unique musical happening.
Founded by Ian Rosenblatt, the Festival is curated by Ian Rosenblatt, renowned pianist Iain Burnside and presented by BBC Radio 3 broadcaster and journalist Petroc Trelawny.
The 2015 Branscombe Festival supports St Winifred’s Church with a donation of 50p from every ticket sold.
