'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 Mid 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.’

'We are a fun, dynamic, national award-winning ladies chorus who sing in four to eight part a cappella harmony. Originally formed some 30 years ago, we’re still going strong thanks to the go-getting, team-spirited women within our group. We perform whenever and wherever we get a chance – in competitions, shows, parties, events and the Channel Tunnel! Our members span ages 20 to 60+, and come from every walk of life, but with a common aim: to achieve great things while having an enormous amount of fun, and to spread that joy to every last member of our audience.'
