We look forward very much to seeing you next year to celebrate the arts in Devizes.
Tribute to Leslie Taylor
Sadly this year’s Festival took place without its longest standing committee member Leslie Taylor who died in February. He made an immeasurable contribution to establishing and ensuring that the Festival maintained its reputation for high quality, professional performance across the arts. He will be especially missed for his in-depth knowledge of classical music and his untiring efforts during the run of every Festival for over thirty years, from putting up banners to hosting visiting artists.
Our successful Festival was a fitting tribute to his memory.
