Time Flies and who would believe that 2010 will see the UK’s largest week long organ and keyboard festivals celebrating their 25th anniversary, a quarter of a century of musical gatherings featuring the very best from the world of organs and keyboards.
Keyboard Cavalacades very first events were held in May and November of 1985 at Ladbrokes Caister holiday centre and the 7 night hobby holidays have grown to become the largest festivals of their kind in the world attracting enthusiasts from far and wide. Who said the UK doesn’t lead the way, they are certainly No.1 for organ festivals given the amazing line up!
For those that don’t know we are pleased to give you a brief insight into the friendly and popular format. This is based around an all day entertainment programme, this starts in the mornings with teach-ins, masterclasses and seminars covering a host of useful subjects, also with a chance to get up close and personal with the stars! The afternoons include informal concerts, tea dances, and competitions with a chance to take centre stage yourself! The evening features at least 4 top name artists from around the world and Keyboard Cavalcade events not only feature the best of British, but also rare world wide talent that you will rarely see elsewhere. The days are rounded off with dancing and also late night bar informal jams and jazz nights. This is all backed up with a large range of exhibitions from all the main manufacturers not only demonstrating the latest product but also providing owner support to get the best out of your instrument. The whole event has a friendly family festival atmosphere, where like-minded enthusiasts can enjoy their hobby to the full whether players or simply listeners.
Keyboard Cavalcade tells us that in addition to the all day entertainment programme, this year’s events will feature a host of extra tweaks and give-aways helping celebrating 25 years of musical gathering.
