haldon is a small coastal village in South Devon between Teignmouth and Torquay. Each year the aim of our four day summer Festival is to provide local people and visitors with access to first rate, professionally-performed classical music at affordable prices. Join us for four days of wonderful music in a stunning setting.

Chineke!, currently one of the most exciting and ‘talked about’ orchestras in the UK, was founded in 2015 by the double bass player Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE to provide career opportunities for young Black and ethnically diverse classical musicians in the UK and Europe.
