Branscombe, Devon
The Devon village of Branscombe has its second festival this year, running from 25-27 July 2014. Founded by Ian Rosenblatt (of Rosenblatt Recitals), Branscombe Festival presents major musicians in a delightful country setting. This year, curated by Iain Burnside, there is a recital by Ailish Tynan and Luis Gomes, cellist Philip Higham playing Bach, and I Fagiolini in a programme which stretches from William Cornyshe and Monteverdi to Cathy Berberian and Britten. Plus Albert Ball's Flying Aces, the UK's only fully professional ragtime band (along with cream teas) and dance band The Leo Green Experience . There is a hog-roast for audience members on the Saturday evening, and a free concert on the beach by the Band of the Royal Marines on Sunday evening. Further information from the Branscombe Festival website.

Branscombe is a village in East Devon, with three National Trust properties in the village.
