From the Archive: Classical Night at Bicton Inn, Exmouth Tim Othen Piano Thursday 7 June 2012

Classical Night at the Bicton Inn, Exmouth
(Script from 'Classical Journey' Tuesday 12 June 2012)

The Bicton Inn, a small street corner pub in Exmouth, is regularly the venue for 'Classical Nights'. Every second Thursday in the month there is an open night, where local musicians can perform for the enjoyment of the other guests. There are also regular guest nights, when a local player can entertain for the whole evening. On Wednesday Tim Othen took the chair and played a glorious medley of classical works by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Rachmaninov. It was an unexpected gem of a recital. The Bicton is certainly worth a return visit!
