The Carwithen Music Festival began on Friday 1st July — a celebration of Doreen Carwithen's centenary, here in Haddenham, her place of birth.
Doreen Carwithen lived in the building in High Street, now owned by Peter and Margaret Aldington and housing the studios of photographer Paul Wilkinson.
A blue plaque was unveiled there by Debbie Wiseman OBE, president of the festival and one of the UK's leading female film composers.
The plaque has been funded by Haddenham Museum Trust.
A fascinating and beautifully curated museum documenting the life of Doreen Carwithen has been created in Paul Wilkinson's studio. Admission is free and is open to the public on Saturday 2nd July from 13:00-16:20. Read much more here
Also learn more about the Carwithen Music Festival and Doreen herself on the dedicated website.
