Welcome to the 


Events for everyone

In anticipation of our Changing Lives project, our fifth annual festival (18-24 July 2020), continues to tell the stories of our local community in creative and vivid ways. Join us for a week of music, dance and drama, as well as fascinating talks from local experts. There is something of a South-American flavour to this year’s programme, so come and learn how to tango, or join Joanna MacGregor for her ‘Libertango: South Amercian Soirée’. ‘Come and Sing’ with our festival patron, John Rutter; or relax at a jazz evening in tribute to the great  John Dankworth and Cleo Laine. We look to the world at large with the musicians of the One Creation project, who bring us a performance of music and poetry from different cultural backgrounds. Then, if that wasn’t enough, explore yet more surprising local connections with famous figures such as Gerald Finzi, Clara Novello (mother of Ivor), Lord Byron, and Italian composer Paolo Tosti, as well-as our many connections with the neighbouring Royal Academy of Music. We are also delighted to welcome the world-renowned Choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, in a concert that charts the well-known St Marylebone connection with the Wesley family. There is truly something for everyone, so we hope you will come and help us tell our story!
