Spitalfields Music Festival


Founded in 1976, Spitalfields Music Festival is now in its 42nd year, bringing artists, audiences and communities together to explore and share extraordinary music in the heart of East London.

In 2017, the festival received rave reviews from the Telegraph, Guardian and Standard, with the festival flagship project, Schumann Street!, and also won a coveted RPS award for Chamber Music and Song.

André de Ridder returns as Artistic Curator for 2018, programming authentic performances of classical masterpieces alongside bold new work from trailblazing contemporary musicians with collaborations that blur boundaries between musical genres.

Spitalfields Music’s work is founded on 3 pillars: Perform, Create and Learn. Curating unforgettable live music experiences that put a new sound on classical music. Creating a platform for new and upcoming artists, nurturing their boldest and most insightful work and through their award-winning learning and participation programme which reaches over 5,000 each year across schools, libraries, care homes and community spaces.

Spitalfields Music’s mission is to provide high quality, relevant and inclusive opportunities for people across East London to engage with music as creators, performers and audiences.

The festival took place from 1-9th December 2018, with WildKat PR managing the PR and Press campaign.
