Dartington Summer School and Festival runs from 29 July to 26 August 2017 at Dartington Hall, Totnes, and to get everyone in the mood there was a party. Party in Town took over Totnes on Friday 28 April 2017, with over 50 acts, 400 performers and 3000 partygoers.

There were family friendly activities, the premiere of Waterwheel a song cycle performed by 90 school children from the area and created by them in collaboration with Brazilian percussionist and composer Adriano Adewale. Other performers included folk stars Harbottle and Jonas, and Dartington College of Arts alumni at the Guildhall. Outside there were street performers, poet Alice Oswald with a community chorus, a gang of human sized crows and of course the Dartington Morris Men.
