APRIL - MAY 2016 www.tavistockmusic.co.uk


INTRODUCING THIS YEAR’S FESTIVAL: Chairman, Christopher Kirwin Welcome to our 14th Tavistock Festival! The 2016 Tavistock Festival (continuing to trade as the Tavistock Music & Arts Festival Ltd), again will sing the praises of all that our award winning market town has to offer. In recent years Tavistock has been voted Best Market Town in Britain and Best Food Town in the South West and with its charming country atmosphere, a thriving pannier market and many exceptional independent specialist shops, the Tavistock Festival is a wonderful annual addition for locals and visitors alike. In this, its fourteenth year, the Festival is spread over two months - again a music, arts and literary festival – with art exhibitions and workshops, dramatic performances, literary and music workshops, poetry readings and lectures, in addition to the many varied musical events presenting a broad spectrum of musical styles. Adam Hart-Davis has now stepped down as President to become our second Life Vice President. We are delighted that Andrew Wilson, local conductor and renowned composer, has taken up the presidential role. Barry Gamble will give the tenth Russell Lecture introducing the Celebration of the Tinworking Landscape of Dartmoor in its European Context event. This event will take place in Tavistock from 6th to 11th May. We welcome once again, Professor Jeremy Black, Professor of History at the University of Exeter, who will give the fifth Drake Lecture on ‘The Politics of James Bond’, where he will take James Bond from the Cold War and the world of the Bond novels to the world of film and the modern age. We are delighted that Wurlitza, who specialise in playing live soundtracks to silent films, are returning to Tavistock to show ‘Sunrise’ with Janet Gaynor,

winner of one of the first Oscars. The Miracle Theatre return to show their film of ‘Tin’ with Jenny Agutter, Benjamin Luxon and Dudley Sutton. Tavistock’s Tavonians Theatre Company will be presenting (in various venues), their superb production of ‘My Boy Jack’ by David Haig, which tells the poignant story of Rudyard Kipling and his grief for his son John, who died in the First World War. On World Dance Day, the Chamber Ensemble of London will give a dance based programme with accompanying dancer, and Viktor Bijelovic will once again return for this year’s Gala Supper. A major addition to our programming both during the Festival, but also throughout the year as part of the activity of the Friends of the Festival, is our work in association with the Wharf Arts Centre, in the promotion of Live Performance Broadcasts of ballet, music, opera and theatre from venues such as The Royal Opera House and the Bolshoi theatre; we are very keen to persuade all of our Patrons to support these events - a wonderful way to access live theatre. 2016 sees us receiving invaluable, both old and new, support from our own Friends of the Tavistock Festival as well as the Bedford Hotel, Olijam Communications Ltd (Tavy Links and Moor Links magazines), Alistair Kinsey, Hansford Bell, Eldred’s, Miller Town & Country, GWR, the Wharf Arts Centre and Mount Kelly Foundation, to all of whom we are most grateful. We would also like to say thank you for the support of all our regular and a number of welcome new, individual event sponsors. We are also glad to receive support from the art galleries involved in the arts element of the Festival and the Town Crier, David Turner. I look forward to seeing you, often, I hope, during the Festival.

WURLITZA PRESENTS ‘SUNRISE’ (1927) – A FILM AND LIVE MUSIC EXTRAVAGANZA

Coming to the Wharf for a return visit, Wurlitza’s performance of their live soundtrack to the silent film ‘Sunrise’ promises to be a treat. ‘Sunrise’ is silent film at its most poetic. Cornish band Wurlitza have added music that will be both familiar and unfamiliar, from Bach and Villa Lobos to Talking Heads, Echo and the Bunnymen, Madness and the Vapors – as well as some of their own. Every part of the performance is live, with no prerecorded material at all. With five musicians and a soundman, Wurlitza’s musical line up uses four part harmonies, piano and keyboards, classical and steel guitars, bass guitar, clarinet and mixed percussion. “What I particularly admired was Wurlitza’s skill

The perfect gift... Do you have a Power of Attorney? If you lose the mental capacity to make decisions, your family is not automatically entitled to deal with your affairs unless you have prepared a Lasting Power of Attorney. Do you have a Will? Wills are cheap and simple to prepare when you consider what could go wrong if you don’t make one. If you die without a Will, you die Intestate and your estate will pass according to the Intestacy Rules, potentially benefiting those who you would not have chosen to inherit.
