ORGANISERS of a series of popular candlelit concerts have announced an exciting line-up of acts.

The beautiful market town of Tetbury will be bustling with a plethora of breath-taking melodies and performances during Tetbury Music Festival between Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, October 6.

His Majesty King Charles III, whose Gloucestershire residence Highgrove House is nearby, is the patron of the festival.

Australian guitarist Craig Ogden will be kicking off the festival with a bang at The Goods Shed Arts Centre on Saturday, September 28 by showcasing the versatility of his instrument by covering a broad range of songs.

Renowned pianist Imogen Cooper will be making her festival debut performing Beethoven's last three Sonatas at St Marys' Church on Thursday, October 3.

The Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective - who describe themselves as ‘a flexible ensemble of wonderful, joyful, kind, passionate musicians' - are due to provide the audience with an energetic performance at the same church on Friday, October 4. 

In addition, the pristine gardens at Highgrove House will be open to visitors during the festival.

Festival director Caz Weller Knight said: “After last year’s sell-out concerts we were keen to maintain the momentum with a varied, international and prestigious programme.

"I hope our loyal supporters will be as excited as we are in our anticipation of the performances this autumn.”
