DBF Law renews sponsorship with Glossop Music Festival
Davis Blank Furniss and GMF

We are delighted to announce that we have renewed our sponsorship of Glossop Music Festival in 2022/23, following the success of the 2021/22 season.

Glossop Music Festival was established in 2013 and has grown to become one of the region’s leading cultural events organisations.

This year’s Summer Festival, which took place in June, attracted nearly 1,000 people who attended 10 events including a family concert, a chamber orchestral concert and a late-night jazz concert.

Renowned musicians including pianist, Viv McLean; violinist, Eva Þórarinsdóttir; and cellist, Hannah Roberts all appeared. The festival also featured conductor Chloé van Soeterstède who has conducted across Europe and with the LA Philharmonic Orchestra in the United States.

Away from the main calendar, a special programme of education events for local schools took place which was based around Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, and the David Litchfield book, The Bear and the Piano. It included in-person school visits by musicians in the lead up to the Festival for pre-concert discovery workshops, and live zoom sessions with the illustrator and author, David Litchfield. It culminated in a series of schools’ concerts in St James’ Church, Glossop.

Kirsty Morbey, Partner at Davis Blank Furniss, said: “We are delighted to renew our support of the Glossop Music Festival. It puts community at the heart of everything it does which resonates with us as a business. We hope the festival goes from strength and we look forward to being part of its future.”

Claire Surman – Artistic Team Leader at Glossop Music Festival – added: “The Glossop Music Festival relies on the generosity of sponsors like Davis Blank Furniss so we are incredibly grateful for their continued support as it allows us to deliver an exciting and ever evolving programme for the whole community. We want as many people as possible to engage with the festival and this money will help us to create the broadest range of events possible.”

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.

Ben Armitage

“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.

Joanne Rowe, Finance Director, Greater Manchester Chamber

“Always able to contact, very approachable, friendly and professional”

Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment

“I believe I have been able to establish a professional working relationship with everyone I have come into contact. Importantly, I sense the relationships which have been established give me the confidence that I can make contact with Davis Blank Furniss at any time and on any matter. I would also like to express my thanks to the very impressive “gatekeepers” who work in reception, not only for making me very welcome, but also for their professionalism”

Bill Pryke, CEO, Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors

“Thank you for your efficient and friendly help throughout this process. We have had it easy but your approach has been part of that”.

Robert Amsbury (Conveyancing Client)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years. I hope also that we may be able to call on you if necessary in the future.”

Valerie Fisher (Probate Client)

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”

Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland

“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”

Anon (Personal Injury client)

“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
