Our Aims

It has fast  established itself as one of the most prestigious classical music events in the country and was recently described by the Times as ‘well on its way to being one of the leading fixtures on the classical music calendar’.

Focus on Community

The festival has always had a strong emphasis on community. Through our Outreach Programme, Aldborough Festival continues to bring concerts to schools, hospitals, hospices, childrens homes & prisons around the region.

The Music

So far the Festival has engaged some of the greatest musical talent around. Star names include Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the Monteverdi Choir, Tasmin Little and the European Chamber Orchestra, singers Janis Kelly, Dame Anne Evans and Lynne Dawson, guitarist Craig Ogden, the Belcea String Quartet, the Freddie Kempf Trio and Pianists Nikolai Demidenko, Tatiana Kolesova and Dmitri Alexev.

The Festival has also promoted the talents of local artists and has worked with many artists featured in the Musicians in Residence Scheme and Live Music Now!

In addition the Festival has commissioned a number of new works, notably from composers Nicola le Fanu, Robin Walker, Thomas Simaku and Sadie Harrison.
