Noel Harrower book release

Exmouth author Noel Harrower has a new book out. Uncivil War – Twin Tales From Nottinghamshire is an ‘action-packed’ historical novel, telling the story of five children caught in the conflict of the English Civil War. Set in Nottinghamshire, the twin tales follow the raising of the King’s Standard at Nottingham Castle in 1642, through to 1646, when King Charles surrendered to the Scottish army outside Newark.

A cappella group Voces 8 gave a magical Christmas candlelit concert at Budleigh Salterton's St Peter’s Church.

From the moment when the strains of Once in Royal David’s City soared into the hushed and darkened church and the singers of Voces8 proceeded down the aisle bearing lighted candles, it was clear that Budleigh Music Festival’s Carols by Candlelight concert was a very special occasion indeed.
