10 to 12 September 2021
The Whiddon Autumn Festival (WAF) is a new arts festival set to take place every September across the picturesque Whiddon Parishes of North Dartmoor. Some of the UK’s most talented young musicians will converge on this beautiful corner of rural Devon for three days of musical events curated by local-born Artistic Director Freddie Crowley.
The musical offering will include chamber music, solo song, education workshops, community participation events, and choral performances by Ensemble-in-Residence the Corvus Consort. WAF is inspired by the success of concerts given by the Corvus Consort (https://corvusconsort.co.uk) to a packed Chagford Church in September 2018 and 2019. These events showed a great enthusiasm in the local community for this type of musical performance and laid the foundation for a larger Festival to take shape.
2021 will see an initial three-day Festival, designed to work within whatever Covid restrictions still exist, and with great potential for growth in future stagings. Over the next few years, WAF will be expanded to include more events with a wider variety of musical genres and styles, and aims to become a cornerstone of Devon’s cultural calendar.
