Join Julian Lloyd Webber for a magical evening

Widely regarded as one of the most creative musicians of his generation, British cellist Julian Lloyd Webber is to appear at 7pm on Friday 29 July, on the first day of the ANRÁN Fest – a mini music and Asian street food festival set in the wonderland of ANRÁN at Tidwell Farm in the village of Landscove near Totnes – in aid of the hospice. Julian will talk about his fascinating life journey including his career and his passion for music, and this will be accompanied by poignant recitals by his famous cellist wife Jiaxin Lloyd Webber and her pianist partner Di Xiao, as well as unique video clips of Julian working with musical legends such as Yehudi Menuhin, Stephane Grappelli, Dame Cleo Laine and many others.

The younger brother of Andrew Lloyd Webber and described as the ‘doyen of British cellists’, Julian was forced to retire from public cello performances in 2014 due to a neck injury.

The three-day ANRÁN Fest is running from 29 to 31 July and combines Asian street food with a diverse festival line-up of music spanning classical, jazz and folk music alongside popular music such as 80s cover bands. Highlights include:

  • Julian Lloyd Webber’s lakeside talk with recitals by the famous cellist Jiaxin Lloyd Webber and pianist Di Xiao in a magical musical evening featuring Bach, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Rachmaninov. There’s also a post-concert supper club with the man himself.
  • Classical pieces by Mozart and Beethoven performed by the Torbay Symphony Orchestra accompanied by piano soloist Di Xiao
  • ABBA, Queen and Shirley Bassey tribute bands
  • Local acts including JAR, Broadband, La Vie en Rose, Skedaddle and Zum Zum
  • The Ronnie Jones Trio with acclaimed saxophonist Simon Spillett

Tickets for gigs start from £20; dining event tickets start from £10. Further information and tickets are available from: www.anranfest.co.uk/
