Elgar Festival

At various venues in Worcester, including the Cathedral and Guildhall, and at Elgar’s Birthplace: The Firs, Lower Broadheath.

For 2019, the festival marks a hundred years since the completion of Elgar’s Cello Concerto.

Held during the weekend closest to Elgar’s birthdate (2nd June 1857), the Festival combines orchestral, chamber, vocal and choral concerts with exhibits and lectures to celebrate the life and music of Sir Edward Elgar at various venues in his hometown of Worcester. English Symphony Orchestra is Orchestra-in-Residence. 

The Elgar Festival brings together leading local arts and educational organisations with an array of internationally renowned guest artists, placing the music of Worcester’s most famous son alongside that of his contemporaries and some of today’s leading composers and arrangers.
