Lawyers speak up for Music Festival

Sproull Solicitors LLP, who have offices in Bodmin and Camelford as well as Wadebridge, were pleased to support this year’s Wadebridge Festival of Music and Speech.  The Festival took place at Wadebridge Town Hall between 25th February and 2nd March.  The Festival, now in its 94th year, showcases an amazing amount of local talent drawn from schools near and far.  The amount of talent displayed by young musicians and performers was, as ever, truly breathtaking.

Chairman of the Festival Committee, Mrs Janet Townsend MBE JP said

“Once again we have had a highly successful Festival week with many memorable performances. Outstanding performers include the Classical Guitar Quartet ,now in their final year at Wadebridge School who have been performing together at the festival since being 8year olds at St Kew CP school;  Lia Teague from St Austell , her first time at the festival and a very talented Brass player; the Mini Minstrels girls choir; Musical theatre performer Benjamin  Hodgson from Launceston  and Margaret Matthews of Wadebridge, awarded the highest mark in the Speech classes in her 80s.

During the week we heard performances from 12 choirs, adult and children, and well over 200 individual performances. Many come back year after year and the festival provides a great platform to work towards a public performance.

We greatly appreciate the work of the teachers who prepare them, the volunteers who help at the festival and of course the generosity of our sponsors and patrons without whom we could not afford to run the festival”.

Commenting on the Festival, Daniel Sproull of Sproull Solicitors LLP said

“We were really pleased to support the Festival once again this year and hope to do so again in 2020.  Although lawyers do have to stand up and talk in front of judges from time to time, I have great admiration for those who are able to play an instrument or recite a poem with such skill and dexterity.  It is a privilege to have such people amongst us.  As a firm we are keen to support local events and I would encourage anybody who is interested to contact the Festival and get involved – contact details are below”.
