Friends of the Festival
The Friends of the Festival is a thriving, friendly group that has been a great support for the Festival for seven years now. The Friends’ subscriptions and subsequent generous donations enabled Lawrence to proceed with the exciting filming project with Jessie Rodger last year when live concerts were impossible.
On July 9th we had the Launch of the tenth anniversary 2021 festival with Lawrence and Huw Watkins (piano) giving recitals for Friends in an afternoon and an evening session to enable as many Friends as possible to attend. We enjoyed an imaginatively programmed concert of a Prelude by Couperin, Three Berceuses by Thomas Ades arranged from his opera 'The Exterminating Angel', the Viola Sonata by Rebecca Clarke and, as an encore, a charming Impromptu by Shostakovich. The weather was kind so there was ample opportunity for Friends to socialise over prosecco and canapes in the garden.
Applications for Friends of the 2021 Festival are still welcome, and given that we may still be living with restrictions in September, the benefit of priority booking for Friends will be very important.
