The English Music Festival is returning to Horsham with two Christmas concerts which promise to bring joy and solace to the Christmas season.
The Festival is expecting to make a loss on these concerts, as it is always very expensive to run such events — however, we were so struck by a comment from an audience member at our Autumn Festival in Horsham that it was a "life-line" for her, that we have realised that we need to put on such concerts whenever and wherever we can, simply to provide the emotional, spiritual, psychological and social benefits that live music-making brings and that people need at this difficult time. Any loss will be mitigated by every extra person who buys tickets, however.
On behalf of the Founder-Director of English Music Festival, Em Marshall-Luck.
With thanks and best wishes,
English Music Festival Intern
