Our central programme features Baltic music – celebrating the centenaries of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania becoming independent republics. We continue to explore British contemporary music with new commissions from Cydonie Banting, David Bednall, Gareth Moorcraft, Huw Watkins, Manos Charalabopoulos and composer-in-residence Martin Butler; and join the birthday celebrations for Michael Berkeley and David Matthews. We open with Joseph Phibbs’ exciting new chamber opera Juliana, based on Strindberg’s unsettling drama Miss Julie; the Nordic theme being continued in art, music and with the screening of three legendary Scandinavian movies.

The supporting programme continues to extend – Welsh art with Peter Lord, Stephen Johnson on music, poet Gregory Leadbetter, TerryVictor’s one-man show Well Thumbed, music and literary talks, Open Studios, exhibitions and film. The dazzling artist line-up includes Festival favourites the Navarra Quartet, HuwWatkins and the Choir of Royal Holloway, and performers appearing at Presteigne for the first time – Latvian violinist Kristīne Balanas, soprano Ruby Hughes and pianist Joseph Tong.

Larsson was inspired bythemes of farm and home; his ideas will be reflected against the rural backdrop of the buildings and landscape at The Rodd, home to the Sidney Nolan Trust.

Jackie will show how simple line drawings and tape can be used to create a plate that can be inked and run through the Trust’s etching press, resulting in a collagraph print. Suitable for both beginners and practising artists, you will make a plate, ink and print it twice, once in black ink and once adding colour with chine-collé. Previous experience of drawing or printing is not necessary. A short introduction will be followed by practical experience using a knife and tools to make the plate. The workshop will demonstrate the potential of collagraph printmaking.

Aprons and gloves will be available, as are refreshments. You may be working outside at times, so weather appropriate clothing is advisable. Numbers strictly limited to 14 per event..

Juliana is recovering from a broken engagement; with her father away on business, she has only a canary for company. She’s bored and depressed, so goes to the kitchen in search of distraction … Laurie Slade’s libretto brilliantly transplants August Strindberg’s most celebrated play, Miss Julie (1899), to a contemporary Swedish setting, confronting a number of topical issues head-on (including the divide between rich and poor, immigration and the transgression of class, social and sexual boundaries).

Yet despite their geographically precarious position, these three small countries have hung on to a sense of cultural identity, and nowhere does that emerge more impressively and movingly than in their music.

British composer Gabriel Jackson has long-held musical ties with Latvia and Estonia and talks to Thomas Hyde about the ‘Singing Revolution’ which heralded the restoration of independence in all three Baltic countries. The ‘Singing Revolution’ not only bought political freedom but, importantly, allowed Baltic composers to express themselves freely in new and experimental musical language. This illustrated discussion centres on leading composers from all their Baltic countries.

The ‘soixante-huitards’ were out to change the world; to stop the war in Vietnam, and to remake the world in the shape of love. Ian Marchant’s school opened in 1968, and he was taught by young hopeful and enthusiastic teachers, who felt that education was the key to making that change happen. In this talk, he’ll be looking at politics, music and literature to recreate something of the atmosphere of those heady days behind the barricade; and to ask, what happened to the soixante-huitards, fifty years on?

Ian Marchant is originally from Newhaven in East Sussex, and now lives with his family in the no longer extant Welsh county of Radnorshire. He has published seven books, including the travel/memoirs Parallel Lines, The Longest Crawl and Something of the Night. He is a sometimes presenter of documentaries for BBC Radio, and has appeared numerous times at festivals (including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and Wilderness) as one half of semi-legendary hippie cabaret duo ‘Your Dad.’ Tickets £7.50 unreserved Tocynnau £7.50 heb eu cadw This event ends at approximately 12.00 noon Bydd y digwyddiad bwn yn gorffen am tua 12.00 nawniau EVENT 9

With its wonderful acoustic properties, St Andrew’s continues to be both the jewel in the Festival’s crown and its spiritual home. The Festival Eucharist is made particularly special by the addition of uplifting choral music – all are welcome to worship at the service.

Based on the narrative of the book, in twelve iconic pictures Peter Lord explores the evolution of Welsh cultures from the mid-fifteenth to the end of the twentieth century. Twelve times, twelve places – twelve cultures, perhaps – but one nation. Peter has published and broadcast extensively on the visual culture of Wales in both English and Welsh, and has curated major exhibitions for national institutions. Between 1998 and 2003 he published the three volumes of The Visual Culture of Wales, which is regarded as the authoritative text on the subject. In 2013 he published an autobiography, Relationships with Pictures.

Well Thumbed is Terry Victor’s irredeemably prurient riffling of well-used classics, somehow managing to squeeze the work of more than seventy great writers into less than an hour – ‘A show’, wrote Arts Scene in Wales, ‘that would have Mary Whitehouse spinning in her chastity belt.’ WellThumbed is a libertine and ribald celebration that contains historicallyrobust language and subject matter. Our libraries will be defended and Jane Austen will be riffled.

30 Sir Sidney Nolan: Spray Paintings Sidney Nolan, Season in Hell (Benjamin Britten), 1982, 182.7 x 159.7cm, spray paint on canvas, © Sidney Nolan Trust Sidney Nolan Studio, The Rodd. Photograph: Alex Ramsay In the 1980s, after settling in Herefordshire, Sidney Nolan embarked on several series of spray paintings, delighting in the new brands of paint made for artists, as well as supplementing his ‘palette’with commercial and domestic spray cans. This exhibition includes works from 3 series: portraits of significant individuals (including his great friend Benjamin Britten, above); images of mythical indigenous Australian subjects; and powerful works that respond to the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody (1987-1991).
