Happy new year! Check out the photos from the Ashdown Music Festival 2013 at updates for the 2014 Festival coming soon!

Very much looking forward to the very first Ashdown Music Festival! Only a matter of days to the first concert. Check the festival website ( if you want some tickets, but hurry as there aren’t too many left…..

I will be on Classical Meridian tomorrow night between 8.00-10.00pm, hosted by St John Brown

We will be discussing the Ashdown Music Festival. The inaugural music festival consists of three concerts on Friday November 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th, all in Forest Row. We will talk not only about the concerts and performers – including recent guest, BBC Young Musician of the Year, Laura van der Heijden – but also what is involved in putting on a Festival in these economically straightened times. Amongst the music we will be playing is the first movement from the Mendelssohn Octet, the complete Boccherini Cello Quintet, 5 Pieces for String Quartet by Erwin Schulhoff (new to me, very interesting, Schulhoff died in a Nazi concentration camp), and a couple of fun transcriptions for Cellophony – Britain’s only Cello Octet.

Details of the Festival Concerts can be found at – and I do hope you might be able to go to at least one concert. I will be at the Saturday and Sunday concerts.

You can listen on 107.0FM if you live within 5 miles of East Grinstead, or on – press the Listen Live button

I do hope you can join us.
