2013 celebrated the Queen’s Jubilee and Benjamin Britten’s centenary performed by the Iceni Choir, directed by Christine Dix.
In 2014 WW1 commemorations provided a magnificent theme with a fitting tribute to the fallen and the festival’s aim of bringing high quality music to all was maintained. Guest soloist Penelope Randall-Davis was magnificent singing the Pie Jesu in the Faure Requiem.
In 2015 we had the added element of participation with a Ceilidh, Come and Sing Concert of the Mozart Requiem, Cello Workshop and a magnificent Cello Concert from the renowned cello quartet, the Cellophonics.
In 2016 personal circumstances meant the cancellation of the event but we return this year with added enthusiasm. Rural life can sometimes be played out in a vacuum. We believe there are distinct advantages in bringing a high standard of musical performance to this area of Norfolk. We hope you will join us.
In 2017 we had events over 3 days. On Friday the Mirlitons Flute Choir performed in St Mary’s church, Saturday saw the Imperial Vienna Orchestra perform in Home Farm barn along with food provided by our village pub, the Mustard Pot. On Sunday we had Palomar Jazz in the barn with a licensed bar provided by the Mustard Pot.
