Mayfield Festival of Music and the Arts

Mayfield Festival 2018

Festival runs from 28 April – 13 May 2018

From Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto at the opening of the Festival until the Organ Symphony by Saint-Saens at the close, Mayfield offers not just something for everybody, but everything for everybody.  At the heart of the Festival is the Tunbridge Wells International Music Competition, which guarantees to present performances by the future stars of the classical music firmament: you will have heard them first at Mayfield.

Featuring half a millennium of colourful creativity – from early choral music, through wine tasting, to modern jazz and everything in between – Mayfield 2018 presents the old and the new, the unjustly obscure and the justly celebrated.

As the Festival careers towards its 50th birthday in 2020, Mayfield proves that 50 is the new 20.  Experience and freshness, security and daring, controversy and received wisdom – they’re all in the mix.

An array of classical instrumentalists and singers, jazz, dance and poetry are all part of the heady cocktail that is Mayfield 2018.


The Festival Box Office opens on Monday 19 February 2018 when you may order online, by telephone, in person in Mayfield or by post.
