Friday 27 – Sunday 29 May 2022

The Beverley & East Riding Early Music Festival was established in 1988 to celebrate this glorious county town’s historic association with musicians from medieval times. Blessed by a wealth of extraordinarily rich ecclesiastical buildings, and a wealth of musical carvings in stone & wood in both Beverley Minster and St Mary’s Church, Beverley is the perfect place for a festival of early music. Supported by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, and administered by the National Centre for Early Music, the festival draws in residents and visitors alike to its annual series of concerts, illustrated lectures and associated workshops.

In 2022, the Festival will open in Beverley Minster with the instrumental ensemble Florilegium directed by Ashley Solomon in a programme of Bach Brandenburg Concertos and close on Sunday evening with Robert Hollingworth’s I Fagiolini.  Full details of the festival will be available in the autumn.
