'It was in 1987 that David and Linda Holmes founded a series of chamber concerts; these began at the Walpole Old Chapel, moving in 1991 to Cratfield. The creation and registration of a charitable trust, Blyth Valley Chamber Music, followed in 1993. By then the format of six fortnightly Sunday afternoon concerts was firmly established, though with some occasional winter extra concerts ... We aim in each season to combine well-known combinations of instruments for which there is an abundant repertoire – like the string quartet and piano trio – with less usual groups of instruments whose repertoire may therefore be smaller, but no less worth hearing. We also intend to offer in each concert enough of what could be called the "core" repertoire to give us a good chance of filling the church – ticket sales being our largest source of income – but to spice this with new or less well-known works.'

'The Halesworth Arts Festival originated 15 years ago. Now a major force in the arts in North Suffolk, it attracts capacity crowds every October, who come for the chance to see top quality artists in small, intimate surroundings. The HAF is a non profit making charity, relying on the generosity of many local businesses and individuals essential to help fund an event of this nature. Unlike many other Festivals, it receives no Arts Council, Lottery or other central Government help.'

‘A group of experienced singers from various parts of Suffolk and Norfolk who meet on the first Sunday of every month to lead choral evensong at Blythburgh church. Since its foundation the choir has also given concerts in other East Anglian churches and sung services in English cathedrals. Concert tours abroad have included Holland, the Alsace, Venice and Vienna. Although the personnel have changed over the years the primary purpose of the choir remains that of keeping alive the glorious repertoire of music composed for the service of Anglican choral evensong.’

'Founded in 1974 with its first concert in Blythburgh, Suffolk. It is a small orchestra of gifted amateurs playing to a high standard. Most concerts are given in Westleton, Suffolk, but occasionally elsewhere. The repertoire is mainly Baroque and Early Classical, but also includes later and modern works. Some concerts are strings only, and may be directed from the harpsichord or by the violin leader.‘

‘Opened in 2004, The Cut has been giving Halesworth quality theatre and music for over 10 years, hosted mainly in the Alan Bates Auditorium, which was opened by the late Sir Alan Bates himself. Not only has The Cut been praised for showing fantastic shows and musical numbers over the years but for showing fabulous artworks from some of the most brilliant local artists in the Suffolk and Norfolk region and also for its superb café that supplies delicious homemade pastries and cakes, all set in a beautifully restored Maltings workhouse that still keeps some of its old world charm.’
