MUSIC, drama, comedy and fun is coming to the Deverills festival of performing arts next month.

The festival, from May 2 to 5, aims to provide something for everyone to enjoy, from classical music through to jazz and world music, drama, comedy, storytelling, street theatre and Ceilidh – Gaelic folk music and dancing.

There will also be an opportunity to work with Salisbury Playhouse practitioners, using costumes, props and lighting to create a show.

The line up includes touring theatre companies Angel Exit, Kepow and Beautiful Monsters, and music from artists including Carducci Quartet, Guy Johnston and friends, Bath Philharmonia, Spectra Musica, Nick Sorensen Trio, Threepenny Bit, 4 Plus 1 and Nectarion.

There will also be outdoor events by the Langport Mummers, street theatre acts and guided tours along the valley.

Richard Munro, festival director, said: “We are all looking forward to a wonderful bank holiday weekend of terrific music and drama.

And we’re delighted that the breadth and quality of the festival has been recognised by Arts Council England and so many generous sponsors in Somerset and Wiltshire.”

Performances will be held in a variety of venues throughout the Deverill villages, including a 16th century storage barn which will showcase the drama.

Refreshments will be available between events in the festival hub in Kingston Deverill and at the George Inn in Longbridge Deverill.
