Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything - Plato
We have a wonderfully eclectic mix of nationally acclaimed artists and our own home grown talent to delight all tastes at this year’s Festival: classical, folk, rock, pop, soul & R&B. Our lovely venues will brim with delectable sound. It all starts with the delightful voices of local children with Berkshire Maestros in St Thomas’s Church (they will soar!) and unplugged local bands in the Morrell Room. Then you can immerse yourself in the music from top talent in the Festival marquee and throughout the villages … and what lovely choices you have … Arias, toe tapping tunes, serene summery sonatas, infectious indie pop, Indonesian gamelan, and gorgeously up-tempo grooves from the one and only Ruby Turner. And the festival will say goodbye for 2016 with a blast of fabulous music from our very own local bands (watch this space for news) and Goring’s answer to Pete Tong – Andy Ankerson. So get ready to let your imagination fly!
