Sea Change partners with Dartington

It is with great pride and excitement that Sea Change announces the third edition of Sea Change Festival will see us partnering with the historically pioneering Dartington Hall estate.

Rupert Morrison, founder of the Sea Change Festival, says: ’Sea Change 2018 reignites a long-standing friendship between Dartington Hall and Totnes, glowing in the embers for nearly one hundred years - built on common interest in art, literature, expression, nature, community and, perhaps most importantly, pushing boundaries. For the first time we’ll be able to offer a large scale space where everyone can congregate and party long into the night. As people who grew up in the area within the orbit of the Dartington College of Arts, we can testify that Dartington sure knows how to throw a party.’ 

Amy Bere, who leads the arts at Dartington, says: ‘We’re really excited to be able to support this flourishing festival alongside our programme of live arts and the world renowned Dartington International Summer School & Festival. Sea Change’s vision and creative values very much align our own commitment to musical excellence and creative curiosity.’

The partnership opens up an ambitious new chapter for the Sea Change festival (24 - 25 August) – by partnering with Dartington Hall, Sea Change can build its thoughtfully curated boutique festival while growing its audience within the iconic Dartington estate. 2018 is an opportunity to write new names into Dartington's quite immaculate story of guest creators in music, art and culture.

If you have five minutes we highly recond you read the Dartington Who’s Who page on their site as it pure sends chills up our spine.

There will be a new large capacity tent venue on the Dartington Estate that will play host to some remarkable music makers in 2018. This is all just the start and we couldn't be more excited.
