Music, Comedy Arts FestivalFestiv'ards 2018 at a glance

Our annual four day classical music festival is back! Festiv'Ards celebrates the best in classical music with first class artists of international repute. This year we kick off with the superb Irish pianist Michael McHale, followed by sumptuous strings with violinist Patrick Rafter. The Gala concert on Saturday features the truly phenomenal choral sound of The Tallis Scholars. Sunday brings the astonishing virtuoso guitarist Thibauld Garcia and in the evening a performance of gorgeous chamber music with the Ficino Ensemble. Bank holiday Monday starts with a dazzling organ recital from Daniel Cook and the festival concludes with the gorgeous sound of mezzo-soprano Kathryn Rudge, the golden girl of classical music.
