ST ENDELLION SUM­MER FES­TI­VAL

Cornwall Life - - RETIREMENT -

The St Endellion Sum­mer Fes­ti­val was founded in 1958, when a mu­si­cal priest, Roger Gaunt, was in­spired to in­vite a group of col­lege friends down to help him ren­o­vate St Endellion’s derelict rec­tory. Slowly the fes­ti­val grew and evolved from small-scale con­certs and an an­nual play to in­clude an or­ches­tra and a cho­rus.

Artis­tic Di­rec­tor Mark Pad­more has taken up the ba­ton and con­tin­ues the tra­di­tion of concert per­for­mances of opera.
