Anthony Wilkinson, Festival Director
Thank you all for helping to make this the most successful Festival so far. Why not help us Celebrate our Journey around the Musical Capitals of the World with two slices of Viennese Sachertorte!
Unfortunately, Sergio Tiempo has been taken ill and is unable to perform at the afternoon concert on Saturday 18th November at 3.30pm. CHRISTIAN BLACKSHAW has kindly offered to step in at the last moment with a programme of Mozart and Schubert...
I have just heard that BBC Radio 3 In Tune - Weds 15th - is featuring The Russian Virtuosi of Europe, as a preview of our concert on Friday.
Counting down the hours now before the music begins with a big opening night.
For late bookers, TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR
The Festival has enjoyed the invaluable support of three Corporate Sponsors over several years, and I would like to say a big thank you to Robert Holmes, Marcus Beale Architects and WSM Private Clients and point you towards the major concerts they are sponsoring this year.
“This is a wonderful festival and we would not want to miss performing in Wimbledon. The acoustics are wonderful in the church and the audience warm and welcoming.” Zoltan Katona

Acclaim from the Music Directors of both St. Pauls Cathedral, and Westminster Abbey for The Cool Web, which opens the Festival on 11th November 2017.
The theme for November 2017 is ‘Musical Capitals’, which gives great scope to explore and enjoy the international language of music, and to invite a host of international performers to Wimbledon.
