Introducing the 2023 Maldon Festival
The Maldon Festival brings art and music events to audiences from across Essex and runs for a fortnight at the end of June and beginning of July, with concerts and events staged in and around Maldon. The Festival has a strong reputation for providing a warm welcome to audiences and is a popular fixture in region’s cultural calendar. We are proud to provide something for everyone, whether it is our loyal concert-goers or those attending their first live music or art experience.
2023 Theme: Coronation Celebrations
The 2023 Festival adopted the theme of Coronation Celebrations. It featured contemporary artwork and historic music that has been used to celebrate past coronations, some of which we heard again in Westminster Cathedral this May.
What was new in 2023:
Some of the Festival’s most popular performers returned to the Festival Favourite concerts in 2023. This includes Blondel, Triptych, and of course, The Festival Strings and Choir for the Festival Finale. An absolute favourite over the years, from singing with the choir to his first recital to now being an established concert performer is local talent, James Housego.
