Hiscox Insurance - major sponsor of the York Early Music Festival
Delma Tomlin, Director of the National Centre for Early Music which runs the York Early Music Festival, welcomed Hiscox Insurance and extremely pleased that they would be part of the celebrations in this significant year. The Festival was established in 1977 and York was chosen as host venue due to its many architecturally significant guildhalls, churches, and the jewel in the crown - York Minster. The music performed covers the period for 1250 - 1750 and audiences have had the privilege to hear talented musicians perform from all over the world.   

The York Early Music Festival is also supported by Harrowells Solicitors; JWP Creers (Accountants) and the Shepherd Group.  

Schroder Financial Management continues their support of the Beverley & East Riding Early Music Festival. 

If your company would like to support either the York or Beverley & East Riding Early Music Festivals, please contact Delma Tomlin at or ring 01904 632220 to discuss opportunities.
