IMG_3864The sixth annual Spring Music Festival ended on a high note with the audience in a packed village hall raising the roof with “A policeman’s lot is not a happy one!” in the finale of the Gilbert and Sullivan dinner. It ended another very successful Festival, with a week of wonderfully varied musical events, from Jazz to the Baroque. Celebrities included Claire Martin, the jazz singer, Pam Rhodes in Songs of Praise, and the return of Red Priest to bewitch us with a night of irreverent early music. There were also virtuoso performances with the German Chamber Orchestra, Salih Gevrek, a young Turkish pianist, and the South American Folk group Inca. And in a more informal setting, Herbie Flowers effortlessly entertained diners at the Bistro Gourmand.

The Rottingdean Arts summer programme follows with Open Air Shakespeare in the Kipling Gardens in June, and a series of Sunday concerts on The Terraces, details of which are in the Brochure.
