From CULTURE & MUSIC Salisbury International Festival
26 May - 10 June Salisbury, Wiltshire: The beautiful cathedral town of Salisbury plays host to an annual festival that showcases a range of arts, from classical and contemporary music to theatre.

The event is launched in Salisbury's historic market square. At the Family Finale on the last day the ancient streets around the Cathedral Close will be filled with street theatre, music, dancing and fireworks.

Major events take place in Salisbury Cathedral, a unique medieval masterpiece, Trafalgar Park, and Wilton Church, and in other locations in and around the town. Other historic landmarks, such as Stonehenge and Danebury Hillfort, are also incorporated into the event.

Two headline acts for 2012 are Suzanne Vega and Joan Armatrading, and there will also be a much-anticipated performance by the Orchestra of the age of Enlightenment.

Shakespeare's Globe presents Henry V, while Jonathan Dove has composed a new church opera, especially for the Festival, entitled A Walk from the Garden. It will be performed in Salisbury Cathedral. The Cathedral also hosts XL - in 40 Parts. A celebration of the Festival's 40th anniversary, this concert of choral music is written in 40 parts.
