The Two Moors Festival

Exmoor and Dartmoor were two such areas affected by Foot and Mouth Disease.

As a result of the devastation caused by the disease, Devon locals, John and Penny Adie (Festival organisers) recognised the need to bring cheer to people's lives and to help regenerate the local economy.

This provided the inspiration behind the Festival. They felt that a week of stunning music-making in churches across Exmoor and Dartmoor would be suitable for marking the end of this tragic outbreak. Out of the ashes of Foot and Mouth Disease came the Two Moors Festival.
