A huge welcome back to Dartington Festival favourites, Ex Cathedra. A leading UK choir with a repertoire that reaches from the 12th to the 21st centuries, they’re known for their passion for seeking out the best, the unfamiliar and the unexpected in choral repertoire, and for giving dynamic performances underpinned by detailed research. Founded in 1969 by the indefatigable Jeffrey Skidmore, the group has grown into a unique musical resource, comprising specialist chamber choir, vocal Consort, period-instrument orchestra and a thriving education programme. In recent years the group has performed in Belgium, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and the USA.

About us

The Dartington Experiment began over 90 years ago when our founders, Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst, set out to build a community inspired by the idea of a ‘many-sided life’.

Today, we believe that their vision is more relevant today than ever before. We aim to be a place where people can realise their individual and collective potential, and are given a chance to connect with themselves, each other, and the environment.

Across the estate, a programme of events and visitor attractions operate year-round; artists, makers, farmers, educators, craftspeople and entrepreneurs live and work; and the community continues to ‘learn by doing’, finding inspiration in the Elmhirst’s progressive ideas and experimental approach.
