The Great Bowden Music Fest was founded in 2014 by violinist and Artistic Director, Christopher White, with the aim of providing high quality concerts of a variety of genres (classical, music theatre and jazz) to the local community at a reasonable price as well as some free Coffee and Chamber Music concerts. Set in the picturesque village of Great Bowden, the parish church of St. Peter and St. Paul is a perfect setting for exquisite music making. Over the past years, the festival has grown from strength to strength with not only a six day festival during the first weekend of July but also a popular New Year’s Day concert as well as one off concerts like “Carnival of the Animals and more”, making it an established, well-supported cultural event in the Market Harborough area.
MEET THE TEAM
Many of our committed group of musicians have been involved with the festival for several years, some from the very beginning, coming from across the country as well as Europe and North America.
The Music Fest committee works throughout the year to plan the programmes, source musicians, provide adequate publicity and ensure that all the practicalities of running the concerts is in place.
