The full programme will be announced at a special launch event on June 5th but at the centre of this year’s Festival is the world premiere of a new oratorio by Sir James MacMillan, All the Hills and Vales Along, as part of the 14-18 NOW commissions for the centenary of the Armistice marking the end of World War 1.

The weekend will be packed with concerts and events performed by leading artists. We require somebody who is organised, motivated, passionate about music and has administrative experience managing music events.
