The Landulph Festival of Music and the Arts was founded in 2002 to promote Music and the Arts in East Cornwall. From a modest beginning the festival has expanded and now presents national and international artistes. The Festival aims to cover a wide range of music genres including classical, folk, jazz and rock, and as wide a range of performing and non-performing arts as possible.
The Landulph Festival of Music & the Arts is organised by The Landulph Festival Association, a non-profit making group which is run along strict charitable lines. Its articles and financial statements are available for public scrutiny
The festival was initially set-up as part of a wider programme to help raise funds for repairing the roof of the 12th century Landulph Parish Church with the inaugural festival held in 2002. Once the church roof restoration was completed the committee was disbanded, having completed its remit. As a result of subsequent encouragement from many local people it was decided to continue the Festival as a stand-alone event. Guided by very hard working and enthusiastic committee members, with help and support from many others, the Festival has evolved.
The festival continues to operate for the benefit of the local community making donations each year with any excess funds. Below is a summary of the organisations to whom donations have been made.
