It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone our literature festival. Given current conditions and advice, we want to ensure that all our audiences, authors, volunteers and staff remain as healthy as possible and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to protect others by not proceeding with our events at this time.

We are currently investigating options for rescheduling events and ask that you bear with us in the meantime whilst we talk with different venues and authors. We are also in talks with our box office - run externally - and appreciate your patience whilst we finalise information for those who have purchased tickets for events due to take place at the end of March. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information.

Thank you all for your continued support - as a charity we rely so much on income from our audiences and sponsors to keep running and hope that, however uncertain the future is at present, we can continue to bring high-quality, inspiring multi-arts experiences to the Midlands.

The Music Makers

The Cardinall’s Musick have won the Gramphone Early Music Award no fewer than 4 times. Directed by Andrew Carwood (Director of Music, St Paul’s Cathedral) this successful and innovative ensemble is known for its extensive study of rennaissance music and premieres of commissioned music.

In The Music Makers, they showcase both strands of their repertoire, featuring Padilla, Praetorius and Byrd with some superb music written for the group in recent years: Judith Weir’s suave settings of George Herbert and Paul Crabtree’s tear-jerking treatment of words by Shaker writer, Ann Lee.

Running Time: 110 mins (approx.)

Combination Ticket Deal

Following this event The Cathedral will hold a meditative Festival Compline, sung by the Cathedral Choir, to start at 9.45pm.
