Padstow Arts Festival celebrates Arnold and Betjeman
3rd September 2009
Arnold, who lived in Padstow from the late 1960s until 1972, was closely involved with the musical life of the region to the extent that he was made a Bard of the Cornish Gorseth in 1968. Among his most famous works is the Padstow Lifeboat March.
Participants in the festival include baritone Benjamin Luxon, the Salieri String Quartet and composer and pianist John McCabe, a long-standing champion of Arnold’s music.
