This Christmas, Dartington has arranged a whole host of activities and events to please every family member.
The musical festivities begin on 10 December with the Children’s Christmas Carols Concert. Over 180 primary school children will fill the Great Hall with Christmas songs and carols. Jonathan Watts will be on piano and Dartington’s very own director of arts David Francis will once take the role of Master of Ceremonies. Tickets are free for this community event but must be reserved through the Box Office.
The choral delights continue on 11 December when Dartington welcomes The Exeter University Singers. The Singers will be treating audiences to a beautiful melange of soaring choral music and traditional carols. Dartington will be welcoming local favourites Matthew & Me to play a very special Christmas gig on 19 December.
The Barn Cinema will show a selection of much loved Christmas films as well as streaming live shows from The Royal Opera House. Some viewings have already sold out so make sure you book your seat as soon as possible.
The shops will also be getting into the festive season with a traditional Christmas Fair on 8/9 December. There will be food and craft stalls, music, children’s entertainment and a very special visit from Father Christmas.
Bling, Dartington’s first ever traditional community youth theatre family pantomime. Showing on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day, Alan Ding takes a journey in Bling, complete with songs, dances, adventures and a Genie!
