With Dr Todd Gray MBE, in association with our Tavistock Branch and Music Section, and the Tavistock Subscription Library.
An evening of word and song revealing the long and curious history of Devon’s anthem. Unknown variants of the ballad will be reintroduced, some after hundreds of years.
The evening is part of a four-week Devon-wide tour recreating Sabine Baring-Gould’s Costume Concert Lecture Tour in which he introduced “Widdicombe Fair” to the world in 1888.
