Beverley and East Riding Early Music Festival

Highlighting the musical and architectural heritage of Beverley and its remarkable historic Minster, the Festival comprises an entertaining mix of concerts, associated lectures and music workshops for children and adults.

Established in 1988 to reflect the music of the myriad stone and woodcarvings of the medieval musicians living and working in the East Riding, the Festival includes orchestral concerts which take place in Beverley Minster alongside smaller instrumental and vocal ensembles presented in churches around the Riding.
