St-Etheldreda-Church-Tomb

The seventh year of the Ironstone Chamber Music Festival will take place entirely in the Church of St. Etheldreda, Horley, North Oxfordshire on the 7th, 8th, & 9th September 2018. We look forward to welcoming you to this year’s festival.

Our Artistic Directors Lucy and Kate Gould are both well known in the chamber music world as members of the Gould Piano Trio and the London Bridge Ensemble respectively. They both have busy careers performing concerts in both the UK and abroad, at Festivals and on Radio and have made a large number of recordings.

It is one of the delights of this festival to be able to invite different musicians to perform alongside Lucy & Kate. This year especially we have been able to expand the repertoire to include a sextet and octets as well as more intimate works for smaller groups and even a Bach Suite for cello.

This Festival is enjoying its growing affinity with our neighbours in Horley and we have in the past performed concerts in other local churches, including Deddington, Kings Sutton and Hanwell. The opportunity for this small and beautiful village to experience music making with internationally renowned musicians is greatly valued. However this year all concerts will be held in St Etheldreda’s Church in Horley.
