LATEST NEWS

Thank you to all who made the 2021 May Festival such a success: to all those at St Mary’s Church and the Drill Hall in Horsham for hosting the concerts and events and for their invaluable help and advice before and during the Festival; to the artists, for their superbly emotive and engaging performances of some wonderful music; to all those volunteers who assisted with general administration, staffing the Box Office, stage-managing and stewarding, and without whose help running the Festival “on the ground” would simply not be possible; and, of course, to our audiences, whose financial and moral support means so much to us and to our musicians as we work together to re-start live music-making.

With the artists’ permission, some of the concerts at the Festival were filmed, as were the talks; and we expect to have these ready for viewing on this website in late June or early July. 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.

Join us on Saturday 10 July for a day of concerts in the glorious surroundings of Truro Cathedral, with a violin-and-piano recital including sonatas by Elgar and Parry alongside Vaughan Williams’s The Lark Ascending; a concert to celebrate the 80th birthday of Cornish composer Judith Bailey; and an evening choral concert with works by Elgar, Parry, Stanford and Tallis. The full programme is available here; and tickets can be purchased through our online Box Office.
