NEW FOR 2012 Clovelly Folk Festival. Saturday 5 May - Sunday 6 May. Location Throughout the village. The picturesque village of Clovelly in North Devon will stage its first folk festival over the weekend of 5th and 6th May. Folk music in Devon has undergone a massive revival recently. Live music invites participation; it binds communities and brings new sound and colour to people's lives in a time of austerity. The Clovelly Folk Festival aims to do just that. This is a festival which locates traditional music in a traditional village, little changed in hundreds of years and will provide a spring time spectacle for all. Tickets: Adults £15; families (2A+2C) £35. Tickets available from The Plough Arts Centre Box office on 01805 624624 For programme details, visit our events web site

Plymouth Philharmonic Choir to bring down the Final Curtain on Armed Forces Week with a little help from The Domestic Diva

The honour of marking the end of this summer’s Armed Forces Week has been awarded to Plymouth Philharmonic Choir. The 150-strong choir and 50-piece orchestra have been asked to put on a special performance of Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man, the most performed work by a living composer in the world today, and certainly a favourite with the Choir’s local audience.
The piece charts the growing menace of a descent into war, interspersed with moments of reflection. It shows the horror of conflict, and ends with the hope for peace in a new millennium, when sorrow, pain and death can be overcome. Perhaps one of the reasons The Armed Man resonates so profoundly with people in the South West is because there can be few individuals or families whose own lives have not been affected by war and bloody conflict, and when listening to this touching, at times terrifying, music, powerful memories are re-kindled.
The Armed Man features a soprano soloist and bringing more than a touch of glamour to the occasion is the stunningly beautiful and exquisitely voiced Juliette Pochin, also known as The Domestic Diva. Her recording and concert career has led her to work with many of the world’s greatest orchestras and she has shared a stage with fellow musicians as wide-ranging as Simon Rattle and Meatloaf (on ITV’s Popstar to Opera Star). Juliette’s voice can also be heard on the soundtrack albums of Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Star Wars. Clearly the Guildhall audience is in for a real treat. Juliette says she is delighted to be performing in the city.
Conductor Christopher Fletcher is also including in the musical programme Andrew Carter’s Horizons and, as befits this Diamond Jubilee year, Sir William Walton’s Coronation Te Deum.
The concert is taking place on Sunday 1st July, at 7:30pm at Plymouth Guildhall.

Trill Summer Festival. Trill Farm, Musbury, Axminster, Devon EX13 8TU tel: 01297 631 113
A long weekend in Devon. A few hundred people. Rolling fields and ancient woodland. An abundance of ideas, fun, food and friends.
The outdoor festival has long been a celebrated part of British summer. In our increasingly commercial world, many people are now rediscovering the joys and benefits of more local, less crowded and blessedly sponsor-free events. Trill Summer Festival is one of this new breed of unashamedly small and non-commercial events, its heart firmly rooted in the native, natural pleasures to be found in its immediate surroundings. Each day of the Festival offers a host of activities ranging from inspiring speakers and creative workshops to outdoor adventures and marvellous music. There'll be a strong focus on biodiversity, sustainability, eco-energy, environment and local food. And, as you would expect from an organic farm with its own chef in residence, the food is superb... delicious and nutritious, wild-harvested, from the farm or locally sourced. If this all sounds a bit too civilized for the more seasoned festival-goer, fear not. Come sundown, special guests will bring each day to a rousing, celebratory end with music, dancing and other nocturnal delights.

National Trust members free. Adult £2 Child £1 Family £5
Tel: 01392 881 345
On Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 October, we are hosting a two day National Apple Day celebration in our orchard. Join us to celebrate the coming of autumn
There is a long history of cider-making on the Killerton estate and we are passionate about conserving our orchards and keeping this heritage alive. Orchards and old English apple varieties are in decline and our National Apple Day event will highlight the importance of protecting them for both wildlife and the Devon landscape.
We care for over 50 acres of traditional orchards. Nearly 100 varieties of old English apple are grown here at Killerton, including the Killerton Sweet and the Killerton Sharp which are unique and originate from our 2,400 acre farming estate. Peek behind the scenes
You can follow the orchard discovery trail to witness our 200 year old giant cider press in action, see where we keep our beehives, try the traditional craft of barrel-making with one of the UKs last remaining Coopers and have a go at woodturning using Killerton’s apple wood. Bring your own apples. Bring along a bag of your own garden apples to the event to mill and press into a bottle of juice to take home and on Sunday meet an apple ID expert who will help identify varieties of visitor’s home-grown cider apples. Stalls will be selling English apple trees, cider making equipment and books.
Children will be buzzing. For our younger visitors there are village fete games to play, apple face painting and a Bumble Bee March through the orchard. Wet your appetite. The Killerton Kitchen food tent will serving up hog roast with home made apple sauce, autumnal mulled cider and apple juice and vegetarian options. Sit back and enjoy a picnic lunch amongst the apple trees with live music, apple-juggling, apple folklore talks and a medieval Mummers Play to bless the orchard.
