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.


Leamington Music Festival 2023

27 April – 1 May

Royal Pump Rooms | Leamington

The starting point for the Festival this year is Rachmaninov’s 150th anniversary – quite a contrast to last year’s RVW150. Other composers with Ukrainian and Russian roots are programmed and we also celebrate the Leamington-born composer Robin Holloway as he approaches 80. The line-up of musicians includes many old friends and some new faces, with connections to Australia, Belarus, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Russia and Slovenia.

It is beginning to look as if we are returning to our pre-pandemic heydays and we revive the idea of a Coffee Concert, from Gemma Rosefield and Tim Horton, and have a first late night recital, featuring pianist Viv McLean. We again include an orchestral concert in All Saints Church with the Sinfonia of Birmingham returning after its well-received first visit last year, this time with world-renowned saxophonist, Amy Dickson . As always, the Festival is a sociable celebration for music-lovers, as we come together to enjoy the outstanding talents of musicians, both established and rising stars.

The Festival Extra return of the Martinů Quartet in mid-May is eagerly awaited and, in June, we continue to enjoy our close ties to the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, with the Chamber Choir and Opera both appearing in Warwick.

After a summer break, we start the 2023/24 Winter Season in early October with the usual Friday evening series of string quartets and Tuesday series of early music with a range of other groups coming to provide the variety of choice that underpins our thriving Education Programme.

Enjoy Leamington Music’s contribution to the musical scene in the heart of England!
