Stourhead Festival of the Voice is like Glastonbury, in that it’s called a festival and involves music. Apart from that it has nothing in common with Glastonbury, unless you count the ever-present threat of rain.
La Nova Singers have performed at Stourhead for the past few years, and it’s always been one of the most enjoyable events we get to do. The gardens are owned by the National Trust and are absolutely stunning – thoroughly recommended for a day out, even without the presence of choirs from across the region. This year we sang in the Spread Eagle Courtyard, the Saloon Steps outside the house, and at the Pantheon.
On September 1, we return to Stourhead to support a very worthy cause – Marie Curie Cancer Care. The Walk 10 event is a twilight 10k walk in aid of the well-known charity; entertainment is provided by La Nova Singers and other groups, and the walk ends with a picnic and fireworks by the gorgeous lake. Visit the Walk Ten website for more information and to sign up.
