Presented by local resident Ian Rosenblatt (founder of London’s only international opera recital series, Rosenblatt Recitals) Branscombe Festival (26-28 July) enables audiences to experience leading international musicians in an intimate, idyllic countryside setting.

For three days Branscombe will play host to top opera singers and instrumentalists, as they perform in the village hall and church, culminating in a free concert on Branscombe beach.

The festival will be hosted by BBC Radio 3 broadcaster and journalist Petroc Trelawny, with performances from stars of the Metropolitan Opera, the Royal Opera House lyric Ailyn Perez and tenor Stephen Costello, the Carducci Quartet and rising young cellist Philip Higham, amongst others.

In addition, celebrated jazz ensemble The Leo Green Experience will give a late-night jazz gig, plus Devon favourite Trelights Brass Quintet perform a free beachfront concert to round off the festivities.
