4th - 6th of August 2022


Elmore Chamber Music Festival

The Elmore Chamber Music Festival is held in the historic 13th-century church of St. John the Baptist in the parish of Elmore, Gloucestershire.


Situated close to the banks of the River Severn, the Festival is dedicated to bringing world-class classical musicians to a stunning venue, in an exquisite location.


The Elmore Chamber Music Festival was first launched in the summer of 2020, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions on all live music performances. A last-minute change to government policy meant that the ECMF had no option but to relocate from Elmore church to an outdoor venue, less than two days before the opening performance. Despite this setback, all concerts were sold out and this first Festival was hailed as a great success.


The second Festival in 2021 took place for the first time in the originally intended venue of St.John the Baptist Church. The artists performing included critically acclaimed double bassist Toby Hughes, international cellist Petr Prause, and the resident award-winning Elmore String Quartet. The full company had huge support from the Parish Church Council and the amazing residents in the village of Elmore. This made the first festival held in the church an unforgettable three-day event. 


Building on the success of the two previous festivals we are now thrilled to be approaching our third season. The 2022 Festival will be held from the 4th - 6th of August and will host some new and exciting additions. Further announcements will be made over the coming months and will be published on the ECMF website and the linked social media outlets.


The Elmore Chamber Music Festival would not be where is it today without the incredible ongoing support of our dedicated and enthusiastic patrons and concertgoers. If you are interested in supporting our 2022 Festival, Click Here or visit our 'Support Us' Web page.
