Each week, Two Moors Festival artistic director Penny Adie will be here on the blog, letting you all know just what’s been going on down at Festival HQ in Devon.

The festival is proud to present its new website and what a site it is too! Up to the minute, slick, user-friendly and enticing, what more could we want!

At a stroke the site reveals not only the superb quality and varied nature of the concerts but the beauty of Dartmoor and Exmoor too. These alone will tempt people to venture further than the homepage and to discover the attraction of combining a holiday in the westcountry with attending some of the highest-calibre chamber music to be heard anywhere in the world.

The display buttons are easy to use and quick to respond. The concerts page has super pictures of the artist, likewise Visitor Info where the photographs make one yearn for an instant break. About the Festival provides background (worth reading, by the way) and the education section gives an insight into some of the peripheral work that goes on throughout the year.

If you haven’t visited the site for some time, why not do so now and please tell others likewise. This is a major step forwards – and it’s what the festival is all about. We are always looking to the future whether it’s artistically, or continuing to raise the cultural profile of the south-west. Next year sees our 15th anniversary, which is quite an achievement since most new festivals die before they reach their fifth birthday!

Onwards and upwards as they say!
