The Tavistock Times & Gazette has published a feature on the plans for the Bratton Clovelly Festival.
The article talks about the plans to make Bratton Clovelly a centre for high quality music and art and outlines progress including BCF’s nomination for a West Devon Mayoral Award.
Joanna Wallwork, chair of BCF, is quoted:
“I’m so touched by this recognition. It’s been hard work and relies completely on the efforts of talented, generous volunteers so this is just brilliant.
‘I feel we’ve come a long way in a short time, working on a very thin shoe string. In its second year, the programme is much more ambitious with high-profile performers from across the country, yet still having an emphasis on the considerable talent here in the South West.
‘The programme is very diverse and aims to provide something for all tastes. With the sad news that Villages in Action is having to close its operation, such small local art charities may become more important than ever.”
