Five days of glorious music and performances, with around seventy percent of concerts free entry, heralds the return of award-winning Sherborne Abbey Festival from 3rd-7th May. Staged at Sherborne Abbey and venues within the historic Dorset market town of Sherborne, the 2019 event will welcome some 8000 festival-goers to thirty events.
With something for everyone and all ages. From pop-up opera, workshops, children’s events and school concerts to world-class music superstars including Nicola Benedetti, Tenebrae and Alexander Armstrong; this has become a must-visit festival for the early May bank holiday weekend
Sherborne featured in a Guardian article in January. The article commented "With its glorious abbey and historic architecture this former Saxon capital could even be a little too perfect". Why not visit and Discover Sherborne for yourself and decide if you agree.
