For our 50th Anniversary Festival , this year, we have unashamedly invited back a number of performers who have appeared here before, since we have had demands from our audiences that they return! But we have also included artists who have not performed for the Festival to create a really varied and first-class programme of events.
We open with a terrific performance of Messiah, performed by Shropshire’s finest choir The Phoenix Singers of Shrewsbury. Handel’s glorious music will resound in the splendid theatre at Concord College. It’s a black-tie performance, but you don’t need to dress up to enjoy it!
Another feature of our Golden Anniversary Celebrations is Patricia Hartshorne’s specially crafted perfomance: “Hats Off to the Festival”. This should be a lively look at our history with lots of music and plenty of laughs.
