A full house attended Tintern Abbey which provided a glorious backdrop to the evening concert. Readings were interspersed with short acts and music. The audience was entertained by the Narth Singers, the Caldicot Male Voice Choir, violinist Fiona Frank who composed and performed her solo piece ‘Nature in the Ruins for the occasion, harpist Charlotte Poulter and singer Rosemary Whaley.
Stories were narrated and acted which took us through centuries of Tintern Abbey's history from the early Cistercians through Henry V111, William Gilpin and Wordsworth to the poet Alan Ginsberg. Claire Hamilton read her poem ‘the Green Man’ and a ghostly story was read by Julia Bohanna.
