'Christmas at the Movies' and Youth Festival 2015
Bowdon Festival is staging a fundraising Christmas concert on Saturday 29 November at 7.30 pm, featuring Milnrow Brass Band and Bowdon Prep School Choir, winners of the 2014 Bowdon Youth Festival Junior Choir of the Year, with guest appearances by soprano Jayne Wilson and pianist Andrew Wilde. Tickets: £12 adults, £5 children, £30 families from Sealpoint, Hale, Dawsons, Altrincham or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funds raised will support the Bowdon Youth Festival 2015, which will take place in St Mary's and Bowdon Parish Centre from 5 - 8 February. In 2014 there were 330 performances by young people aged from 6 to 19, in 52 classes—from brass, piano, strings, woodwind and singing to drama and poetry—reviewed by five highly qualified adjudicators.
In 2015 there will be eight adjudicators, and an organ class for the first time. Adjudicators will include Stefan Janski, Head of Opera at the RNCM, and Steven Roberts, Chair of the British and International Federation of Festivals.
The closing date for entries to the Youth Festival is 30 November 2014. See www.bowdonfestival.co.uk.
