What was new in 2023:

Festival Favourites

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.  

Candlelight Concerts

Young Musician’s Concerts

Introducing the Junior Festival Programme

Thanks to support from Essex County Council Arts and Cultural Fund the 2023 Festival introduced a junior programme which includes Young Musician Concerts, Children’s workshops and a Junior work experience programme which covers art, design, production and front of house.   Expert help and support from Plume, Maldon’s Community Academy and New Hall School has been invaluable in developing this programme.
