Leominster Festival 2010

Another year without The Minster College

June 2010

For a second year, Leominster Festival had to manage without one of it’s key venues – The Minster College. The main theatre in college by now has been demolished and the new Community Theatre in The Earl Mortimer College is not yet ready for use. However, we’ve heard positive comments concerning it and look forward to using it next year.

Until then, a busy year lugging the mobile lighting rig to various venues around the town and utilising the sound system at the Priory Church.

The Simon Deeley Jazz Trio

Saturday 5th June 2010

An easy swinging afternoon as this popular trio return to the Festival. A sell-out audience enjoyed the show and the delicious ploughmans lunch offered in the interval.

A homage to Michael Flanders and Donald Swann, those two great wits, composers and performers who were at the heart of ’50s and ’60s satire in the form of the theatrical revue.

Again, a disappointing turnout for this world class performer whose voice took full advantage of the wonderful accoustics in the Priory Church.
