Tickets for the inaugural Deverills Festival of performing Arts will go on general sale on Monday, with the four-day event featuring everything from music concerts to guided walks.

The festival, which will take place over the bank holiday weekend of May 2-5, will include 23 different events based around Longbridge Deverill, near Warminster.

Among the events taking place is a performance from Spectra Musica Chamber Choir on May 3 at Longbridge Deverill Church, with the concert being sponsored by estate agent Myddelton & Major.

Spectra Musica perform throughout the south west of England and their repertoire spans six centuries and covers many different styles of music.

Festival director Richard Munro said: “The area has a vibrant arts scene all the year around but we thought it would be great to hold a festival to pull some events together.

“Spectra Musica are one of the region's premier chamber choirs so their Saturday night concert should be one of the highlights of the festival.”

Other festival highlights include an audience with bass-baritone John Shirley-Quick and the Carducci String Quartet with Colin Parr, which will both be taking place on May 2.

The programme also includes the Kepow! Theatre Company performing Seven Ages, Angel Exit Theatre's production of The Ballad of Martha Brown and an orchestral concert held by Bath Philharmonia.
