The Musicians of Southwell Music Festival

Southwell Music Festival is a special music festival. One of the key reasons for this is that the musicians who come to perform in the town are resident here for much of the festival and take part in a number of different events. This is not a festival with a carousel of touring acts for whom Southwell is another show along their road. No, Southwell is almost unique in welcoming musicians who, in their turn, treat the town like home for the duration.

This short film (by Simon Platts) we’re publishing today reflects that experience from the perspective of these terrific musicians who visit Southwell for the festival – this year about 100 leading professional singers and players from across Britain and further afield. We really hope that it gives you a fresh perspective on Southwell Music Festival and encourages you to come and be part of all the wonderful events that the town has to offer over the August Bank Holiday weekend every year.
