Dartington Dreams and Nightmares

Music performance by artist Ben Calvert on Saturday 8 September at Dartington Space. Buy festival pass today

'She goes down in gardens to take in the view/There are strange cold stone statues that wait for the rain.' Dartington Dreams & Nightmares is the new EP by Ben Calvert & The Swifts. This collection of songs tells the stories of lives within the setting of the sprawling gardens, historic buildings and performance studios of Dartington; a beautiful, isolated, inspiring and haunted place, with its own ancient and modern myths and legends. For this performance, the EP will be performed in its entirety. Along with Ben's tribute to Nick Drake, 'It's a Long Way To Town.'
