Music in Felixstowe

About Us


Following the huge success of the Music in Felixstowe concerts, we are presenting a fifth series. Audiences have had the opportunity to hear the best premier musicians, many of whom live in East Anglia, and it has become very clear that concertgoers appreciate live professional music in the town. A special rapport has been built up between performers and listeners, thanks partly to the unique venues. The success of these concerts has led to further performances in venues such as “The Cut” Halesworth, Woodbridge School, and at Waldringfield and Kirton Village Halls. 
More recently, the Felixstowe Festival Orchestra has been formed and is available for fund raising events. Its first concert was the Last Night of the Proms Night held in aid of Seafarers UK.
