Onwards and Upwards

Well a new season almost upon us we are rebuilding our website and are very excited to announce our Autumn/Winter programme.

The team has done a wonderful job in moving Hungerford up the quality ladder; in addition to performing locally our artists this season are also appearing at prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall – New York, Christchurch Cathedral in Vancouver, as well as special-guesting for Sting, Special Guest Jool’s Holland

We have drama based on the classic book the Ragged Trousered Philanthropist; the ‘poet laureate of Twitter’ Brian Bilston; original contemporary music with Jack Lukeman and Angel Snow, and Area Code 629 bring us our first country and western event. Amazing cover bands returning include Ultimate Elton and the Rocket Band, and with the full rock edge Wrong Jovi.

Classical artists include Fretwork“The finest viol consort on the planet.” (Stephen Petit, The London Evening Standard) – and a return visit from popular cellist Philip Daish-Handy with pianist Martin Penrose.  We are also excited to have the New London Chamber Ensemble open their 20th season in Hungerford – “Individually captivating and collectively brilliant throughout.” (Musician Magazine).

Christmas brings The Carice Singers to St Lawrence’s Church – new arrivals on the Hungerford scene from the Cheltenham Music Festival and Oxford Lieder Festival. An external event we are glad to promote.

We continue to feature and support Young Musicians with both Contemporary and Classical Concerts providing valuable performance opportunities. These are outstanding concerts with growing audiences.

We are proud to have set up the Hungerford Primary School Art Fund to improve children’s exposure and opportunities to participate in the arts. £1 will be donated from each Arts for Hungerford event ticket this season. This will provide lunchtime concerts to the whole school as well as tuition and workshops from a variety of professional artists.

We hope you will enjoy these top-quality performances right on your doorstep.
