Experience the magic…


The 2019 North York Moors Chamber Music Festival has now taken place - thank you all for making this year such a resounding and sell-our success, musicians and audiences alike. 100 years after the Great War, we focused on music expressed from a profound source, music that ultimately triumphs over adversity and survives with a story to tell. This was a festival of light and dark, beauty through pain.

Now eleven years old, our festival celebrates great music through friendship, sharing, the landscape, history and architecture - taking audiences on a journey throughout the North York Moors National Park, stirring the musical spirit within us all.  Over 40 musicians, 2 weeks, 9 churches, around 40 chamber works all create a friendly and passionate environment within one of this country's most spectacular regions. Please feel free to join our mailing list and attend the events outside of the festival.

We will be returning next year so reserve the period of August 9th -23rd 2020 in your diary. All will be revealed on our launch weekend this November 8th/9th - click here for details and tickets. Early booking highly recommended.

Everyone is welcome - music is for all!

A celebration of music and and community complements the extraordinary nature of our National Park upon which we delve into the repertoire within its great historical buildings.  As the festival continues to grow with each year we strive to retain its friendly and unpretentious, all-inclusive atmosphere and affordability.
