38th Calne Music & Arts Festival

Carole Browne - President


Another Festival is over, one which by general consent seems to be have proved successful and popular. The wide-ranging and eclectic programme of music provided something good for most tastes, the talks were excellent and the art and poetry of the same high standard that we have come expect.

I would like to thank the local schools for their participation, the Friends of the Festival without whom we would struggle to continue, our sponsors, the artists and performers, all involved with the Box Office and day to day management, and finally, the members of the Committee who have worked tirelessly thought the past year to put the Festival 'on the road'.

Please do let us know if you have any comments or suggestions, and we look forward to seeing you at the 2013 Festival.
