The Edington Music Festival celebrated its Diamond Jubilee in 2015, 60 years from the first one in 1956. One element of the celebrations was an exhibition in the Priory Church of “60 Faces of the Festival”, featuring 60 past participants who had gone on to have remarkable careers, mostly in music, but in other areas of the arts and public service too.
The list is by no means exhaustive, and since 2015 there have been other participants who will doubtless be included in any subsequent similar exhibitions. The exhibition does serve to demonstrate the extremely high calibre of those who come to Edington as part of the festival. Just click on each photo to see a short biography of their achievements.
