All this year's concerts are held in the wonderful Mediaeval St Andrew's Church in Marks Tey which combines a beautiful period backdrop & acoustic with modern amenities including ample parking, disabled access, modern WCs in the adjacent church hall and under floor heating.
The church is located in Church Lane, Marks Tey CO6 1LW and is signposted from the A120. It is a 10-15 minute walk from Marks Tey railway station or 5-10 from the nearest bus stop.
This festival receives no arts or other funding. Instead, it is run by musicians for musicians, on a cooperative basis. If you are looking for a chance to perform please bear in mind the following:
There are no guaranteed fees for concerts. Performers receive takings on the door minus expenses for church hire and possibly a small charge for administration.
Basic local advertising will be undertaken for the series as a whole but participating performers will be asked to do anything they can to spread the word.
The number of concerts each year is limited by the one administrator's time to organise.
