La belle époque

Join us 14-16 July for an inspiring, eye-opening and sociable weekend of French music and culture, featuring some of our best-loved musicians and some sensational new ones. All four concerts will be recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 3 – what a milestone to reach in our 18th year!

Booking is now open. If you haven’t already, please sign up to our email newsletter for the latest updates.

Huge thanks to the Garrick Charitable Trust for their support. We are seeking generous and enlightened individuals to make this mini-festival a huge success by sponsoring a concert each. Please get in touch with Harry Anderson or Orlando Jopling via the contact page if you would like to help.
