‘Set up to bring high-quality live classical chamber music and associated arts events to the beautiful Exmoor market town of Dunster. To achieve this we have two main threads; the first is our annual festival in Dunster over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend, and the second is our ongoing programme of education and outreach work, taking musicians into the local community to reach those who may not otherwise be able to access the festival itself, including concerts in care homes and hospices, and reaching out to a larger and more diverse audience through family concerts and interactive performances for children in schools. We are working with local businesses and organisations, as well as musicians of international renown, to make this a community event with the highest possible level of artistry.’
