Petersfield Musical Festival

For more than a century, the Festival has promoted music-making in and around Petersfield. It now provides a varied programme of choral, orchestral, family and youth concerts, smaller-scale recitals and guest performances. Over 600 local singers and instrumentalists of all ages share the platform with visiting musicians of national and international standing.

The Festival’s Michael Hurd Memorial Fund supports young musicians through grants and events. The Festival takes place at the Petersfield Festival Hall, built for the purpose and officially opened in 1935. The Festival is a registered charity, run for the benefit of the community, not for profit.
