In recent years, in addition to events in specific locations across the region, a number of Chilterns-wide festivals have sprung up. This is excellent news for two main reasons: (1) more local events from which to choose; (2) in the long run, we hope, a higher profile for the Chilterns as a whole.
The star at the moment is the Chilterns Arts Festival – a week-long programme of musical events in some splendid venues including All Saints Church in Marlow (pictured above). The climax is a special performance of Così fan tutte at Pipers Corner School this Saturday, 16 February.
The year is still young, so there are plenty more Chilterns-wide festivals to come:-
- The Chilterns Walking Festival (twice a year, with the first in late May and early June)
- The Fisheye Filmfest (September/October) – screenings, competitions and other film-related events
- The Chilterns Heritage Festival (late September to early October) – visits to some of our magnificent historic houses, themed walks and other events
See you there…?
