Nothing gladdens us more than to hear about festivals back on track for 2022. And Sea Change festival returns to Totnes next year from 27-29th May.
As usual, a range of atmospheric buildings across the town will be hosting the festivals programmes of music, art, film and literature, from Grade I-listed St Mary’s Church, the ethically innovative Bull Inn, Barrel House Ballroom, 17th-century Birdwood House, Totnes Cinema and award-winning Drift Record Shop.
The Sea Change lineup will be announced in January but some news is out now, just to whet our appetites. On Thursday 26th May, Chilly Gonzales is set to open the festival. He will perform an intimate solo piano recital at Dartington’s Great Hall, amid the beautiful gardens and woodland of the historic cultural site, just along the road from Totnes.
Sea Change founder, Rupert Morrison, says, “Chilly is, without doubt, one of our favourite and most-played artists; his solo piano albums are just perfect. We’ll run out of superlatives before May, but this is an absolute dream booking for us and we honestly can’t think of a more special way to launch the weekend. We’re delighted to work again in partnership with Dartington Arts to bring you this amazing show at the historic Great Hall.”
Sea Change tickets are sold via Citizen Ticket. For every ticket purchased, 5p goes towards planting trees in the UK. This way, hundreds of years after an event has finished, its legacy will still live on, absorbing CO² and helping local wildlife to flourish. citizenticket.co.uk
Both weekend tickets and bundles – to include the Chilly Gonzales show – are on sale from 11am on Wednesday 8 December via www.seachangepresents.co.uk
