LATEST NEWS

Following the success of the Christmas Concerts in Horsham on 17 and 18 December, we are pleased to announce that the films of the performances are now available for viewing on this website. We are making a small charge for these, which will help to offset the costs to us involved in making and editing the films; we will also, however, be paying a proportion of the ticket sales to the artists in order to help support them further during what continue to be very difficult, uncertain and worrying times for musicians. To buy your film tickets, please click here!

The 2021 May EMF is scheduled for the Spring Bank Holiday weekend (28 to 31 May) and will most certainly be going ahead if public gatherings are permitted. However, due to the ongoing situation relating to COVID-19 and, in particular, the uncertainty regarding physical-distancing rules and other restrictions that may still be in place at that time, we are, sadly, not able to announce the programme at present, as has hitherto been our custom. We intend, however, to publish this on 1st March, with booking opening two weeks later on 14th March.

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.
