The Three Choirs Festival is a week-long programme of choral and orchestral concerts, cathedral services, solo and chamber music recitals, masterclasses, talks, theatre, family events, exhibitions and walks, rotating each summer between the beautiful English cathedral cities of Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester. It is thought to be the longest-standing classical music festival in the world and celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2015.
The main festival’s packed schedule of daytime events is augmented by community and outreach projects bespoke to each city.
