The Two Moors Festival in conjunction with Classic FM
It is a long time since 2001 when the Two Moors Festival was set up to help regenerate Dartmoor, Exmoor and the area between the Moors after the devastation caused by Foot and Mouth disease. That first ever festival comprised ten days of intense music-making in very rural places. Since then the Festival has developed enormously so that it now ranks equal amongst other national and international festivals in Britain.
