Community musical to be premiered
THE Eden Valley Festival will play host to the premiere of The Eden Valley Creation. This brand new work has been written for the 2012 festival by Kathy Staff and Jacky Hintze. The formation of the local area is interwoven with the Biblical story to produce a unique musical interpretation of the creation.
The original inspiration came from the writings of the Rev Somers-Cocks at the turn of the last century.
Turning the written score into a musical production was the real challenge. Although initially scored for the A Cappella ladies’ choir, it soon became clear that the use of instruments and additional voices would add to the dramatic flavour of the piece. A search was launched to unearth local talent, with the result that The Eden Valley Creation has evolved into a real community event.
In just a few weeks the size of the choir
Art at the festival
THE Queen’s diamond jubilee will be marked with special exhibitions. Topfoto Gallery in Fircroft Way will be showing The Lion’s Roar: Winston Churchill and Eden Valley Diamonds. Entry to the opening night on 31 May is by tickets obtained in advance.
The Eden Valley Museum will be showing Vivat Regina, 1952, a glimpse into local life at the time of the coronation.

doubled and amateur and professional musicians came forward to lend their services.
Local primary schools and church groups joined forces to form a children’s choir to sing a hymn of contemplation, in which the young voices of the next generation offer a timely reminder that we are responsible for the health of the planet.
This unique event is taking place at Edenbridge Parish Church for one night only on Saturday, 9 June.
The programme begins at 7.30 pm with a selection of music and drama pieces on a creation theme followed by the premiere of The Eden Valley Creation. To make it accessible to all, entry is by donation at the door but it is hoped people will give generously to ensure that the lovely medieval church continues to thrive as a local landmark, place of worship and worthy venue for musical gatherings.
