Fathers Day 2019
Taking place on the third Sunday of the month, Father’s Day in the UK is on the 16th June. It is believed the Father’s Day we are custom to today originated in 1908 on July 5th in Fairmont, West Virginia, when Grace Golden Clayton mourned the loss of her father who tragically died in the Monongah Mining Disaster, which killed 361 men, 250 of them fathers.
Today, we celebrate our fathers who may be near or far. So why not celebrate your loved ones today, no matter how far away they may be.
Celebrations are in order for Shaldon Festival as it celebrates its 30th Classical Music Festival this year at St Peter’s Church! Inspired by Eileen Croxford Parkhouse, cellist wife of David Parkhouse, the festival began in 1990 as a memorial concert to celebrate her husband, an internationally renowned concert pianist, who was born in Teignmouth!
