Don’t miss the Tinners Moon Festival, Ashburton, Devon!

We wrote about the wonderful Ashburton Arts Centre back in October 2020 and director Andy Williamson explained why the venue was so loved by performers. The Tinners Moon Festival, which had had to be cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, is in full swing right now and you really shouldn’t miss the opportunity to dip into its rich smorgasbord of events.

I am definitely up for the talk on Dartmoor’s ancient tracks on Thursday April 28 and I may try stepping out of my musical preference bubble to listen to New Folk singer and multi-instrumentalist, Nick Hart (tonight at the time of writing). Look out for a review!

The Arts have had a tough time and venues have been hit especially hard. That motto – “Use it or lose it” was never more apposite.

So why not remind yourselves of the pleasure of a live performance and grab a (very reasonably priced) ticket for one of the gigs or talks?
