Romsey Chamber Music Festival

A celebration of chamber music


The Romsey Chamber Music Festival, which started in 2018,  is a celebration of chamber music which takes place in late April each year. We welcome international award winning young artists to Romsey for a series of concerts which highlight both well known and lesser known masterpieces of the chamber music repertoire. The Festival aims to make performances of the highest quality accessible to the widest audience and has a broad programme of educational work with local schools.

The 2020 Festival joins the world-wide celebrations of  Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. We also continue our journey exploring Bach’s keyboard works transcribed for strings, while our popular family and late night concerts return. We will be welcoming back familiar faces from last year, whilst new award-winning artists for 2020 include cellist Findlay Spence and the Ametza String Quartet. 

Autumn 2020 - dates to be confirmed.

Laura Rickard, Artistic Director



In light of the current circumstances, looking at the actions of other countries, the advice of the WHO and the government's position, it is with sincere regret that we have to announce the postponement of RCMF 2020. I'm devastated not to be sharing music with you next month, but we will be back on the other side of this crisis. 


We are working with our performers and venues to announce new dates for the festival as soon as possible, very likely to be in Autumn 2020. If you hold tickets for this year's festival we will issue new tickets for the new dates and will get in touch with you separately. Meanwhile, we have a special online concert for our friends and ticket holders. If you would like to listen, subscribe here and we'll send you a link!

Keep well, and we hope to be performing for you all in Romsey as soon as possible!

Best wishes, 

Laura Rickard

Artistic Director
