Stratford Music Festival 2024

Since 1996, the Stratford on Avon Music Festival has been successfully presenting a week of high-quality chamber music aimed at the local community with a focus on young artists.

The Stratford Music Festival is excited to be taking a new direction from 2024, which will include more workshops in schools with prominent professional musicians and singers which will focus on encouraging children to play, sing and learn through the medium of music. Music connects us all, and to that end we feel that in order to sustain outstanding musicians, we need to invest in music in schools.

We are proud to be in talks with some amazing companies, which will work with our primary schools and secondary schools in the Stratford Upon Avon area to educate and inspire the younger generations. The Stratford Music Festival will work to develop an innovative and inspiring program of work which will enable and support schools, teacher and children in putting singing at the heart of the school community. We will be working with qualified teachers, performers, composers, singers and instrumentalists who are all passionate about ensuring the best quality and meaningful experience for children. 

The Stratford Music Festival will also continue to be committed to showcasing live performers of the highest quality again from 2024. Thank you for your support at this exciting time and we hope to update you soon! If you would like more information, please email or join our mailing list. 

The 2020 Festival was described by the Stratford Herald as “totally sublime.” And as one of our audience members put it after seeing one of our headline events: “Our first time at SMF….and WOW!  What a terrific recital.  We thoroughly enjoyed it – great acoustics and a venue where the music was more vibrant because of the audience proximity to the artists”.
