ORGANISERS of a volunteer run music festival in Camborne are appealing to businesses across Cornwall to support this years’ event.

The Camborne Music Festival, which started in 1970, attracts amateur competitors from all over the South West who come to perform in a wide variety of classes and ages.

To commemorate the start of World War One, this year sees the addition of a new vocal class especially for adults who can sing any song from any year of the war.

Secretary Wendy Curnow said: “This year's festival is a landmark year.  Our 45th anniversary coincides with the centenary of the outbreak of World War One and we are expecting up to 300 performers to descend on Camborne to compete.

“The competition will be adjudicated by the internationally renowned and respected musician John Forster and we are very excited about his involvement.”

The week long festival takes place at Camborne Centenary Church from Monday, November 10 until Friday, November 15 with the official opening on Tuesday, November 11 at 6:30 pm.

Chairman of BID Camborne, George Le Hunte, said:  “Camborne Music Festival is really important to the grounding and encouragement of musicians, both young and not so young.

“Staging the festival week costs more each year which means sponsors, patrons, and advertisers are vitally important to making this festival the success that it is.

“Any businesses out there that would like to help to put on this years event will find that there are various sponsorship and advertising opportunities available so please do get in touch.”

If you would like to support Camborne Music Festival please contact the secretary Wendy Curnow on 01209 711626 or wendy.curnow@virgin.net.

Gosh, that is a very old picture of Camborne Methodist Church. It has since been renovated and painted pink!
