Book your seats

Steven Isserlis CBE, celebrated cellist and our Honorary Patron says of the 2024 festival:
‘As always, the festival offers a wonderfully fresh and enticing blend of the familiar and the unfamiliar, presented by a very special group of (mostly young) musicians who will give the music their all. It promises to be a marvellous and memorable festival – enjoy it; I know you will!’

Buy your festival tickets

Tickets go on general sale this coming Thursday February 1st, online at as well as at Rowanthorn and in Whittington Post Office. Tickets for the Family concert plus Jazz on Saturday afternoon cost £15 and for the other concerts £19, with under 26s admitted free to everything. If you intend to buy a Festival Pass, price £76 (a saving of £15) you have until Thursday February 15th to do this. Passes are only available online.

Help needed!

We are urgently looking for someone to work out the logistics of getting musicians to and from Bronygarth and Whittington over five days. You need to have an eye for detail and be able to use Google docs, but the good news is that you will have help from Jude Greaves and will be rewarded with free tickets. The task should take 10 hours in total, from mid-February until the festival week in May.
