Two Moors Festival 2017

The Two Moors Festival:
Classiest classical music festival in the Southwest. Check out their website thetwomoorsfestival.co.uk for more details of this year’s event.
The Two Moors Festival (TMF) was founded sixteen years ago by classical music enthusiasts John and Penny Adie as an antidote to the economic, environmental and social devastation caused when Foot and Mouth disease hit the South West, particularly throughout Exmoor and Dartmoor. From a small series of concerts designed to bring cheer and help regenerate business across the moors, the Two Moors Festival has grown beyond all recognition into a major national – and increasingly international – event.
The uncompromisingly high standards of the festival attract some of the most exciting performers in the world, putting the TMF firmly in the A* league. Concertgoers travel far and wide from Europe, the USA and Canada to attend the festival’s ten day music marathon and to enjoy sensational classical music performances in one of Britain’s most beautiful areas.
Throughout its 16 year evolution, the festival’s aim has always been to connect artists, audiences and communities with exciting, varied – and sometimes challenging – programmes of classical music, talks, open rehearsals, master classes, competitions and workshops.
