Welcome to the Hornsea Music Festival website!
I'm happy to say that the 'Celebration Concert' was a brilliant success! The standard of each and every performer was superb and with the constant variety of musical items, the whole evening was thoroughly entertaining and delightful.
Congratulations to everyone who participated!
We would like to say a very special THANK YOU to all the accompanists who helped out during the evening. Obviously, to our two official accompanists, Leonie Cresswell and John Boxall, but also to the teachers and individuals who gave up their Saturday evening to play so skilfully and sympathetically for the performers. Their efforts were very much appreciated.
Our festival is a non-profit making charity that is run entirely by volunteers but even so, every year, we still run at a loss. This year's festival left us with a deficit of over £1,000. How wonderful it would be if, for the first time in the festival's history, we could actually break even and get back into the black, so that the future of the festival can be assured.
Here's one way that you can help…
The Celebration Concert DVD
This year we have made a souvenir DVD of the event. We are hoping that our supporters will be kind enough to make a small donation in order to receive one.
After many hours of editing, our photographer, Matt, has produced a very professional video showing each musician's performance to the very best advantage.
It's a wonderful reminder of a lovely evening, and thoroughly entertaining!
Here's the good news!
Anyone giving a goodwill donation of at least £5 to Hornsea Music Festival
will be sent one of these very special DVD's as a "Thank you" gift.
To do this online you can pay through the PayPal donate button at the bottom of this page, and then send an email with your postal address to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get one sent out to you as soon as possible.
Or, if you'd rather, you can post a cheque to our treasurer, Georgina Chamberlain, again not forgetting to include a full postal address.
Why not give a Concert DVD as a Christmas gift to family and friends?

Want to take part?
Any amateur musician can take part in the festival, and we have a large selection of classes from which to choose. Our 2017 syllabus will be available early in the new year, so please check back around that time if you would like to take a look. The 2016 syllabus is still available for reference purposes (under 'about' on the website menu).
Want to help?
During the festival things can get a bit hectic and we need all the help we can get.
If you would like to help us out (there are many different roles!), please get in touch with one of our committee members.
Alternatively, we do now have a donation option through PayPal, which you can access below. All the proceeds go directly to the festival, and are very much appreciated!
As the festival is a charity and wouldn't exist without the voluntary efforts of all involved, we would just like to give a huge THANK YOU to those who give up their time to make the festival happen!
