1.  Music Festival Special

Di Collins reports:  Tributes have come thick and fast for the organisers of the 13th Annual Dart Music Festival held last weekend. With over 600 performers, 30 different venues, hundreds of hours of great music, and more than 50 volunteer helpers, the festival once again lived up to its promise of ‘music for all’.  Pam Braakenburg, Chairman of the Dart Music Festival, thanked the many sponsors and patrons whose contributions had made it possible for the festival to have such great talent as Ruby Turner, the Neath Male Choir, Bowjangles, the Quails and many visiting and local musicians who appeared in the programme.

"Without the financial support of the sponsors, patrons and donations collected the festival could not happen. Dartmouth really does have them to thank for making it possible, and I would urge people in the community strongly to support those local businesses who contributed.   "The three wonderful days of fantastic musicians; the many fans; and great support from our sponsors made for a great event. The weather remained dry and enabled the many local people and visitors to enjoy the great atmosphere at the bandstand and in the Market Square.  “I think this has been one of the most successful festivals we have held to date." "On behalf of the committee: Thank you Dartmouth"

The Dartmouth dot TV crew had a really great time and would like to thank the organisers and the performers for their cooperation in our photography.  We have far more photographs and if you need anything, just ask?  And a request, any chance of 4 days guys?  There is simply too much to see in three days!
