Welcome to Latimer Music Festival
For many years a music festival was held in the village church at Latimer which relocated. This was sadly missed and so a few villagers thought it would be fun to continue this tradition. Last year we held the first music festival in St. Mary Magdalene Church to commemorate the end of the First World War which was a great success.
Originally conceived as a one off, the concerts were so well received that we have decided to repeat the experience. Pianist, Mark Nixon has kindly agreed, once again, to perform the role of Artistic Director and performer and has created a stunning and varied chamber music programme this year. The final concert features the festival’s three pianists playing on the Shigeru EX Concert Grand which we are privileged to have on loan from Kawai Pianos again this year.
The three concerts will take place on 19th, 20th and 21st July 2019. Why not spend the whole weekend with us, enjoying all three concerts in the beautiful Chilterns? Take a look at the ‘local info’ page with recommendations of local restaurants and accommodation.
