UK classical music festival followers down in the south-west will surely welcome the latest news to come out of Two Moors Festival HQ – we’ve been working very hard over the last few months on plans to bring an unrivalled concert hall down to this part of the world, a rural location where huge concerts the like of which you typically see in London simply do not happen.
The proposed plans for the hall – still very much in the discussion stage, as millions of pounds are required to see the hall come to fruition – include a capacity of 1,800 and several smaller performance rooms for the visual arts, as well as more intimate productions.
Artistic director of the festival Penny Adie said: “The presence of the concert hall will put the south-west on the cultural map of the UK at last. Something that has been needed for years.
“The public deserve a concert hall of the very best and it’s time this part of the country was able to offer facilities of the best possible standard to be able to invite the finest artists and orchestras in the world to perform – and who would leap at the chance to do so.”
What do you think of the proposed plans? Do you think there’s the need for such a concert hall down in the south-west? Let us know in the comments below.
