Martin Randall Festivals

Celebrating music and place

There surely can be few greater musical pleasures than listening to music in the places most closely associated with the composer or the first performance. Linking the music to the places so central to the composers’ lives, and providing the historical context, is at the heart of all our planning, as is ensuring that the music itself is performed by artists of the highest international standing.

The audiences on our classical music festivals are formed of participants who take a package which includes access to all the private concerts, accommodation, flights from the UK and transfers, meals with wine, talks by a musicologist, tips and much else besides.

In 2024 we have: Mozart Along the Danube (28 July–4 August), The Divine Office (30 September–4 October), and Opera in Sicily (18–24 October). Click here to watch our webinar, 'Showcasing Martin Randall Festivals in 2024', where MRT's Artistic Director Lizzie Watson is joined by leading musicologists, each of whom is accompanying one of our forthcoming festivals either as speaker or performer.

Our festivals in 2025 so far are Music along the Rhine (8–15 May) and the Cotswolds Choral Festival, (16–20 June). In due course, we will also be releasing details for Music along the Seine (16–23 July), and Handel in Valletta (November – precise dates TBC) – please contact us to register your interest.
