'The Festival was first held in 1926, the year of the General Strike, which hardly augured well for its future! The hope was then expressed “that in time it would become one of the greatest musical events in this part of England” – could they have imagined that the two day event would achieve its present pre-eminence and still be growing eighty years later?' Held Early May.
