John Davy is perhaps the only composer from our area to have had his music played at the Last Night of the Proms. Davy was an incredibly talented musician who found fame and fortune in London but came to a tragic end.
If you are interested in art and craft, in meeting local artists and seeing where they work, 11-26 September are dates for your diary. Devon Open Studios is an event that helps artists, and those who love art, potential customers and the curious to meet with each other all over Devon. This year there are 183 venues showing the work of 323 artists. Our picture editor, Nancy Murgatroyd, introduces some of the artists who will be exhibiting in and around Crediton.
