Music Festival 16th-21st
Inaugurated in 1981, this is the 34th year for the Burton Bradstock Festival of Music and Art. The Festival takes places in mid-August, presenting an astonishing range of high quality events in just eight days, including orchestral concerts, evening and lunchtime recitals, intimate late evening performances, a children's workshop and an art exhibition. Most of the concerts take place in Burton Bradstock’s exquisite 16th century church. The season is preceded by a Spring Concert on 5th June in the village hall.
Details of the programme for this year will be available from early May, and you will be able to book tickets from 9th May. Preliminary information will be sent to the Friends of the Festival in their Newsletter in late March. Why not become a Friend? See the Festival web site for details.
