EVERTON VILLAGE FESTIVAL June 11th‐ June 18th www.evertonfes

This year’s extended fesval opens in the St. Mary’s Church Hall on Sunday June 11th with ‘A Summer Serenade’, an evening of light classical music. Tickets £5.

As usual, the Fesval offers a wide range of musical evenings: jazz, folk, swing, classical, rock and blues and brass. There are workshops during the week for starters and improvers on the ukulele, with the hope that students will give a cameo performance during the popular Empty Frets Extravaganza on Saturday June 17th.

The Fesval focus is on a different art form on June 12th, when the village hosts a Photographic Soirée…an evening in which wildlife cameraman Dr. Manuel Hinge will be showing his acclaimed film of the New Forest, ‘Ytene’. He will be accompanied by internaonal award winner, local photographer, Louis Rumis, who will be showing slides of his work in the New Forest.

Photography and the environment are a key theme in the Fesval this year. This kicks off with a Photography Walk on 31st May, during which ramblers will be encouraged to take photographs, which can then be entered into the Fesval Compeon, entled ‘Spring in the New Forest’. This walk is led by Volunteer Forest

Ranger Steve Adams, with the help of arst Carole Knighton. Please phone Steve on 07754 842 731 to book a place. The compeon is open to anyone, and photographs do not have to be taken on the walk. Entries will be judged by Louis Rumis and then exhibited at the Soirée. Details can be found on our website.

thanks to the support of Everton Community Associaon and sponsorship by Hyundai and Purewell Timber. Ticket details are available on the website.
