Championing Music in Our Community

Leamington Music was launched in July 2006, and aims to maintain Leamington and district as a musical centre dedicated to promoting excellent music.

Welcome

First there was Lockdown Two… now comes Tier Three!

We are so sorry to say that with Warwickshire going into Tier 3 once the national lockdown ends on 2 December, we will be unable to go ahead with all of our concerts as planned; in the spirit of positivity, however, we remain hopeful that the government’s review on 16 December of local tier statuses will allow us to enjoy the York Waits.

 

The York Waits return to St Mary’s Warwick on 17 December to celebrate the Festive Season with songs, carols and dances from across medieval and renaissance England Europe, performed on recorders, shawms, crumhorns, rustic bagpipes, sackbuts, fiddles, gitterns, guitars, and many more besides!

The Waits will offer the same programme twice, at 5pm and 7.30pm, to allow more people to enjoy the socially-distanced concert.

Booking is open but tickets are limited and sold in advance only, so book now to avoid disappointment!

Leamington Music and those running the venues being used have made every effort to make the events safe in these difficult times and government guidelines will be followed.

 

If you have tickets for our December concerts, we offer the opportunity to transfer them to a Leamington Music concert in 2021 – see plans outlined below – but, of course, a full refund for cancelled concerts is available. We hope you might consider kindly donating the cost of your ticket to us, as we are now raising money to help us pay the musicians who have lost this work, and so much more, thanks to Covid-19.

We also hope our wonderful audiences might help our fundraising efforts by donating to our gofundme appeal below.

Please bear with us for a short time as we work to get things in place for 2021, and we will be in touch as soon as we possibly can with new details. Naturally, if you would like us to arrange a refund for you before this time, please don’t hesitate to contact us by emailing helen@leamingtonmusic.org or by calling the Leamington Music office on 01926 497000.

Please join our emailing list to keep up with developments over the coming months – you can sign up using the box to the right, or by emailing helen@leamingtonmusic.org, and you can always call the Leamington Music office on 01926 497000 to find out more about events and the organization.

Our plans for 2021 continue:

The Bach Players

Early Music at St Mary’s Church, Warwick

Following the York Waits Christmas Concert in December, the plan is to resume on 26 January with the Bach Players and further concerts in February and March, with booking opening 4 January.

Investec International String Quartet series in Holy Trinity Church, Leamington

Three dates are planned for January, February and March. However, as these plans currently involve quartets from Germany, Romania, and the Netherlands, we are keeping a close eye on the international travel situation and are necessarily cautious about announcing anything too soon!

Concerts in The Dream Factory, Warwick

With family concerts, chamber concerts and more in our plans, there will certainly be something for everyone to enjoy.

2021 Leamington Music Festival

The dates are Friday 30 April to Tuesday 4 May and details hopefully will be available in January.

Please make sure you are on our e-mailing list as we may have to contact you at short notice this year…

For now though, we hope to welcome you to our concerts again soon, live and in person!
