Book now for the Summer Weekend

Join us on 14-16 July for our summer weekend of French music and culture in Coggeshall’s beautiful parish church, St Peter ad Vincula.

The music is curated by the blazing creative force that is Tom Poster and features some of our best-loved musicians and some sensational new ones. We are particularly excited that all four concerts will be recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 3 – what a milestone to reach in our 18th year!

Friends booking is now open and general booking will be available from 18 April. If you haven’t already, please sign up to our email newsletter for a reminder nearer the time.

Huge thanks to the Garrick Charitable Trust for their support. We are now looking for four 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.

We look forward to welcoming you to Coggeshall for an inspiring, eye-opening and sociable weekend.
