This is a very much a community event. We rely on volunteers who help in a variety of ways, from planning the programme, designing the posters and handling social media and advertising, through to delivering leaflets and providing cups of tea in the refreshment tent. We would be very grateful for your help. If you would like to become involved please contact us or call Emily Curtis 01604 740796. If anyone in the community would like to sponsor one of our concerts, or to promote their business in the Festival programme notes, please get in touch.
The Brixworth Music Festival was created in 2014 by a small group of enthusiastic Northamptonshire musicians who wanted to bring together a variety of musical talent to perform a series of concerts in the heart of the historic village of Brixworth. Most of the concerts are held in Brixworth's Saxon Church; its ancient walls and cavernous ceiling providing a wonderful acoustic and the perfect surroundings for the timeless pieces being performed.
The Brixworth Music Festival is gradually gaining a reputation – not only in Northamptonshire but also nationwide and in Europe. Since its inauguration in 2014 our audiences have been provided with an interesting mix of classical and contemporary music, interspersed with jazz and light music. Artists have included some of the best orchestras, choirs and bands in the area, as well as international ensembles and soloists. In 2015 we had the pleasure and privilege of hosting the Master of the Queen's Music, Judith Weir. Plans for the fifth Brixworth Music Festival in May 2019 are well underway. Our aim is to reach out to the community and involve them in all forms of music – and to also include local composers and musicians.
The 2019 Festival will cater to all tastes – ranging from choral music of the Renaissance, classical music for orchestra and string quartet to male voice choir and music from the shows. It will also feature our second international competition for women composers.

The Festival could not take place without some generous sponsorship. Every year we battle to find donors who can help to make this wonderful musical celebration possible.
