The mission of the Festival is:
Sixteen days at the end of November each year are devoted to glorious music-making in Wimbledon and nearby areas. The Festival period was chosen to embrace St Cecilia’s Day, November 22nd, and we like to celebrate the Patron Saint of Music with events involving the community.
During the rest of the year we are out looking and listening to find the very best of world-class performers to bring to the Festival. Some are household names, some are inevitably less well known but we think are equally top notch.
Often the pleasure is all the greater in discovering a new artist, or being introduced to an unfamiliar sound world. Some of our ‘hidden gems’ – such as ‘Gesualdo’, or the superb ‘Calefax Reed Quintet’ – have proved to be many people's event of the Festival.
