Fes­ti­val launch

The Galloway News - - NEWS -

In­ter­na­tional so­prano Emma Mor­wood was thrilled to sing in what could be the world’s small­est opera house this week.

Emma, pic­tured, was per­form­ing in one of Kirkcud­bright’s beach huts to launch the pro­gramme for next month’s Fes­ti­val of Light in the town.

She said: “It was quite an ex­pe­ri­ence to sing in what might be the world’s small­est opera house and it’s such a beau­ti­ful part of the world here in Kirkcud­bright.

“To have artists here from all over the coun­try will be amaz­ing and Sally Hob­son has done a won­der­ful job of cu­rat­ing and cre­at­ing a co­he­sive pro­gramme. Kirkcud­bright is go­ing to be a very ex­cit­ing place to be for the du­ra­tion of the fes­ti­val.”

The fes­ti­val, be­ing held to mark the open­ing of the town’s new gallery, will fea­ture light dis­plays, craft work­shops, a Di­wali event, mu­sic, a lan­tern pa­rade, fire­works and a 60s and 70s night.

It will take place from Oc­to­ber 5 to 14 and we’ll have fur­ther pre­views in the next few weeks.
