Dartington’s first Party in The Town, Totnes: May 27th 2016

Adriano Adewale Party in the TownDartington International Summer School and Festival put on its first-ever Party in the Town in Totnes on May 27th – over 400 local performers and schoolchildren performed in packed venues, from the beautiful parish church of St Mary’s and the medieval Guildhall to the funky ballroom in The Barrel House.

It climaxed with British jazz warrior and sax legend Courtney Pine in Civic Hall (introduced in true rock n’ roll style by Joanna MacGregor). Events and performances – from 6pm to 11pm – were all free, and rapturously received: there were queues and packed houses all over Totnes. A fantastic night!
