This long weekend of music making is now entering it’s sixth year, and is an annual treat for music lovers.

Welcoming musicians of the highest international standards, the festival is put together by Artist Director Guy Johnston. Hailing from Hertfordshire, Guy delights in bringing live music to the special setting of Hatfield House.

This year works by Haydn will feature throughout the festival, opening with the lively Cello Concerto in C and culminating with his uplifting oratorio The Creation in The Old Palace. We can look forward to musical offering from three quartets, two orchestras, a chorus and a number of acclaimed singers and soloists.
