Air on a G String at Tiverton Parkway

You may have heard that we’re putting on a series of classical music concerts at Tiverton Parkway railway station this October, with a number of brilliant musicians – including cellist Guy Johnson and violinist Tai Murray – taking on Bach’s Partitas just after the 11.37 train to London.

The first Season Ticket for Bach takes place on October 15th (with the series ending on the 19th with harpist Keziah Thomas), but before it all kicks off we’ve decided to hold a mini concert tomorrow (September 21st) in the station, with acclaimed violinist Kerenza Peacock playing excerpts from Bach’s E major Partita between 11.37 and 12:10.

You might think that a train station is a bit of an odd place to hold a classical music concert but Tiverton is actually something of a gem in this regard. Its wooden roof and stone floor make it perfect acoustically and we here at the Two Moors Festival just couldn’t resist using it as a venue for the main two-week event in October this year.

The Bach series is free but by ticket only, so call the box office on (01643) 831 006 to book a ticket or to order a brochure to see what else we’ve got going on in the autumn this time round.

Where’s the strangest place you’ve ever been to a classical concert?

  1. Well done, Sally! It was a lot of fun particularly when the train rattled past. Passengers loved it, the station staff were full of beans and the Bach playing was superb. Kerenza looked fantastic wearing a pink concert dress with bling in her hair. All between 11.37 and the 12.09!

  2. I THINK THIS IS THE MOST BRILLIANT ECCENTRIC GLORIOUS IDEA & IF i WASN’T SEEING A GOD DAUGHTER ELSEWHERE I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO BE THERE.
    HAVE FUN!
