Artistic innovation and musical discovery in the Welsh Marches

Situated in an intimate town nestling on the Powys/Herefordshire border, the Presteigne Festival has become a mecca for those seeking musical nourishment and artistic discovery in the idyllic surroundings of the Welsh Marches. With a truly forward looking commissioning policy, the organisation works closely with composers and artists to create and curate inspiring programmes and events for an ever-widening Festival community.

The Presteigne Festival takes place annually over six music-filled days during the late August bank holiday weekend. The Festival has a long tradition of supporting young artists and specialises in the promotion and presentation of contemporary classical music.
