from around the world will be available, including a Feast

classical and country. Music will come from SuperGlad,
Corsica Studios, Pandemonium Drummers (from the London 2012
Olympic Games), Purcell School, the NHS Choir and many, many
more. In addition there will be comedy from local talent
ahead of their scheduled appearance at the Edinburgh
Festival, and scenes re-enacted from selected Shakespeare
works. Funds are still required to cover the cost of hosting
