Festival Projects. What is it?


Every year Deal Music & Arts hosts a plethora of world-class performers and artists arriving for the Music & Arts Festival. We make the most of them being in town! Many of them hold masterclasses and workshops with local schools or get involved in our education programme in other ways. Adding to this, we regularly put on concerts with children from local schools and often hold schools’ workshops or Arts Award sessions. This year we will be holding a special Jubilee concert on 23rd June at St George’s Church with children who are part of our ‘Bold As’ Brass project.

We are also working closely with local Key Stage 2 pupils on a special project entitled The Mud Maid which is based on the children’s book written by Sandra Horn and illustrated by Karen Popham that tells the story of the discovery of Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall. Joy Spencer has composed a suite of music inspired by each of the 12 beautiful illustrations in the book and children are invited to create their own responses through any medium they choose. Their work will be showcased at two performance of the The Mud Maid Suite at St George’s Church on 3rd July as part of this year’s festival programme.
