Young talent is important to the festival organisers; a long term aim is to raise funds for a local young person to benefit from music education.

“Having run one of Europe’s leading contemporary music schools, I have seen the enormous benefits that quality music education can bring to a young person’s life” said Festival Director, Jennie Rainsford. “I am passionate about creating this legacy and we are striving to set this up in the not too distant future.”
