'Most events take place in the ancient village church of St John the Baptist ... This lovely building has a fine immediate acoustic, and music heard at this intimate range has real impact and presence. A concert here is a very special experience. The Festival features promising young talents as well as nationally and internationally famous artists and composers. The programme ranges from classic masterworks to the less familiar, but no less intriguing. It includes something for all - early, baroque, classical and contemporary music rub shoulders with jazz, folk music, art lectures, poetry and children's events.' Held Early October.

Chamber Music in the Chilterns  ‘An annual chamber music festival that takes place over three days in June. It was founded in 2009 by Paul Lewis and his wife, Bjørg Lewis. Their wish was to start a festival near to where they have lived for many years. They wanted to create an event that would be a significant addition to the local music-making scene, but also through the international calibre of its artists, attract a national and international audience.’
