Music from leading stars of opera and classical music
“I’m thrilled to announce that Branscombe Festival is back for its fourth year, with a packed weekend of opera, classical music and, for the first time, cabaret, all in this beautiful beachside setting. We’re welcoming the return of The Leo Green Experience with Danny Toeman and introducing newcomers: cabaret sensation Miss Hope Springs, soprano Serena Gamberoni and baritone Luca Salsi, and the famous brass ensemble Camborne Town Band, among others. We hope that people from near and far will enjoy everything that the festival and the surrounding area have to offer.”
Ian Rosenblatt, Founder
An intense weekend of world class performance, in one of Devon’s most stunning locations, the Branscombe Festival offers entertainment for all. A rich, carefully devised programme of classical music, opera, and brass band promises to delight and excite audiences. The Branscombe Festival is fast making a reputation as one of the South-West’s key cultural events; artists who regularly top the bill in London and New York perform in the intimate spaces of village hall and church, attracting music lovers from the local community and across the region. A village festival set on an international stage, Branscombe is a truly unique musical happening.
Branscombe is a picturesque village in the English county of Devon. It is located within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, overlooking Lyme Bay. Sweeping down a spectacular valley, past colourful thatched cottages with hanging baskets and climbing roses, down to the sea and a shingle beach, Branscombe is one of the most beautiful and scenic locations on the South East coast.
