Stogumber Festival 2015: 10-13 September – it's time to put the date in your diary!
Classical music, folk, jazz, recitals, dance, buskers, a free art exhibition and children's art and music workshops... All this and more over four days in a beautiful West Somerset village, blessed with wonderful late-summer sunshine - as you can see on the Festival Highlights page, just click on the tab above.
Stogumber's world-class music and arts festival's second year saw headline acts including terrific performances from jazz singer Clare Teal, the Jubilee Quartet, baritone Roderick Williams with Lada Valešová, swing jazz and more from the utterly brilliant Gypsy Fire Quartet, vibrant a'capella folk foursome The Teacups, and a knock-out gig from storytelling folk singer-songwriter Ange Hardy.
Audiences also enjoyed the fabulous Luna Gitana Flamenco Company, superb performances from top Guildhall School of Music students, and a Young Talent double bill featuring stunning guitarist Darren Hodge and the lovely acoustic folk artist Kitty Macfarlane on the final afternoon, sending everyone off with a song in their hearts.
