The show must go on!

Now, the Two Moors Festival is based in the very heart of the beautiful Devon countryside, right on top of the moors so we’re not at all unfamiliar with – shall we say – rather tempestuous weather. The mists descend all too often upon Barkham, the festival HQ, but come rain or shine we always forge ahead with whatever we’ve got planned. Anyone who came to our last Garden Party for example will know that a little rain won’t stop the festival or any of its supporters – we always prevail!

And so too does wonderful pianist Lang Lang, apparently. He recently gave an outdoor concert in Hangzhou, China, but came off a little bit worse for wear when the weather broke dramatically halfway through his performance. Luckily a tarpaulin was at hand to cover the piano and he could carry on playing, but no such luck for the audience who – proving their mettle and their love for classical music – stood in the pouring rain until he finished. What troopers! We hope they come to some of our concerts this year – we’re off to Culbone again and that involves a three-mile walk to the church and back, which is certainly one for the most determined of concert-goers.

Here’s Lang Lang, doing his thing:
