Neston Music Festival in its current incarnation was founded in 2017 by a like-minded group of Neston residents building on the Festival’s earlier form as a weekend of “classical” concerts at Neston Parish Church.

The first Festival in spring 2018, which aimed to bring to Neston musicians who would not normally perform in the town, was a resounding success and the organisers agreed to make it a regular event and to seek more participants.

The Festival grew bigger for its second successful season in 2019, but the 2020 Festival was necessarily cancelled (on the day the programme was published!) as the Covid-19 pandemic took hold. For the same reason there was no Festival in 2021.

However we returned in 2022 and the programme we presented then may be viewed on the past programmes page.

A Festival for 2023 is planned for between 14 April and 15 May. See those plans evolve on this website
