The Nottingham Post’s classical music critic William Ruff visited Southwell Music Festival on a number of occasions this week. The performances have left quite an impression – in a 5* star review for the Post the wrote:

“Exceptional performances, imaginative programming, superb presentation: all combine to make Southwell an August paradise for music-lovers”

Mr Ruff enjoyed the Symphonic, Choral and Chamber concerts on offer in Southwell Minster during a week of around 35 events, half of which were free. He had this advice for those interested in visiting Southwell Music Festival in future:

“There’s really no need to choose between concerts: just book for them all.”
