3-5 May 2019, at All Saints, Pembroke Road, Bristol

This Festival is a new venture, organised on a non-profit basis by a group of Bristol musicians, to present and encourage participation in early music.

The first concert is on Friday evening at 7.30, a programme of seventeenth century vocal and instrumental music given by the London-based group Sounds Baroque, followed by late-night viol music from Bristol's favourite baroque cellist and gamba player, Jonathan Rees.

On Saturday and Sunday there will be workshops, concerts and other events. The following are planned:

Saturday morning and afternoon:

Saturday evening: performances by Bristol groups Bristowe Consort, Musica Mundi and Rosafresca.

Sunday morning and afternoon:

Sunday evening: a concert by the Bristol vocal ensemble Nova.

More details of the programme and ticketing will be available before long.
