LATEST NEWS

We are absolutely delighted that the EMF is playing its part in restarting music-making in the UK and that our Autumn Festival will be going ahead this year, with concerts beginning on the evening of Friday 9th October and continuing throughout Saturday 10th October. The programme may be viewed on this page; and booking can be made through our Online Box Office.

We will be following all government and World Health Organisation recommendations and policies at the Autumn Festival to keep our audiences safe (including face coverings for all audience members except those who are exempt, physical distancing throughout the church, hand sanitising stations and one-way systems around the venue), so, for those of you who might be nervous about venturing out, please rest assured that the Festival will be taking place in a safe environment.

Thank you so much to all who contributed to the 2020 Online English Music Festival: to the artists and speakers who provided such wonderful concerts and talks; and to the audience members who purchased tickets for the online performances, thus helping to support the Festival and the musicians during this period of difficulty and uncertainty. Your support is most warmly appreciated.

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.

Our recording arm, EM Records, has released a number of exciting new recordings, including a triple-disc set of Parry’s complete works for violin and piano and a disc of searingly beautiful choral works by Paul Carr and others. Please visit the EM Records website for full details of these and others!
