St Leonard's Church


The Bledington Music Festival is an annual music event which takes place over three summer evenings in June and features top class performers from all over the world.

This year's Festival will take place on June 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

Planning for the 2015 Bledington Music Festival – Pianofest '15 – started early. It will be a celebration of the instrument with appearances by well known and award-winning performers. On each of the three days there will be a 'coffee' concert at 11am and an evening event at 7.30pm, each held at St Leonard's church, Bledington. In all, seven pianists and one violinist. To help raise funds for these special concerts we held a Champagne and Canapé event on Sunday July 13th, 2014 which went well. Read more here...

Every year an increasing number of music lovers make their way to St Leonard’s Church in the pretty village of Bledington in the heart of the Cotswolds just 10 minutes from Stow-On-the-Wold and 40 minutes from Oxford.

The Festival has grown every year since it was established in 2000 when Thomas Trotter, the current President, gave a recital at Bledington; the popularity of that occasion gave rise to this successful three day Music Festival. Over the years the festival has welcomed many performers. Each concert is unique and outstanding, many artists having performed all over the world – we are very grateful to have their support for our festival!

We are extremely grateful that many of the musicians also give of their time to perform a concert especially for the local school children; this is always a much anticipated event and is part of our ongoing educational programme to expose children to various instruments and music. More info...
