Festival for Classical Music

At first glance it looks like a rock festival. Hardy campers in wellies and odd hats traipse from event to event determined to have a good time. There's a double decker cider bus and food stalls are selling curries and burgers. And, of course, there's lots and lots of mud. Concert Hospitality Packages are still available.

But it sounds nothing like Glastonbury or the Big Chill. A soprano is belting out an aria from a soggy yurt while further on a choir is being coaxed through a tricky bit of Mozart in a wind-battered marquee. Over on the main stage a full orchestra is tuning up.
