Come and Listen
Of course, the festival would not be the same without an audience. If you would like to hear live music played by a huge variety of ages, abilities, instruments, and styles – or if you just want to drop in for a while, we would love to see you. We aim to keep admission prices low – you can see everything except the final concert for a one-off fee of just £5.00 which covers both weekends. Please note that this fee is payable by adults including those who wish to watch their own pupils, children, or friends, unless they are playing an accompaniment. However it is FREE for helpers and children as well as entrants and their accompanists.
The outline programme is shown below. To get details of every class including the music you will hear, you will need a full programme which will be available on the door (£5.00).
