LATEST NEWS

We are delighted to be returning to the glorious surroundings of St Mary’s Church and the Drill Hall in Horsham for our 2021 Autumn Festival, which will run from Friday 12 November until Sunday 14 November. The full programme is now published and can be viewed at this page; booking will open on 27 September.

Thank you to all who helped to make the Truro Concerts in July such a success — and, in particular, to Patrick and Jean Waller, without whom the day would not have been possible.

With the artists’ permission, some of the concerts at the 2021 May Festival were filmed, as were the talks; and we expect to have these ready for viewing on this website in October. We will be making a modest charge for access — this is to cover the costs of production and also to enable us to pay a royalty to the performers. More details will be available soon.

If you would like more details about our Friends’ Scheme, please follow this link to our ‘Friends’ Scheme’ page for a description of the tiers and their benefits, together with information about how to join.
