The Petersfield Musical Festival is both an annual celebration of music and a musical charity which supports and rewards creative talent throughout the year.
Location and dates
Our next Festival takes place from 15 to 23 March 2024 with concerts in the Festival Hall and St Peter’s Church providing a showcase for local musical talent, young up-and-coming performers as well as internationally-acclaimed artists. We also usually hold a choral workshop in September each year.

For over a century, the festival has been a hub for the many musical organisations in Petersfield and the surrounding area with choirs, orchestras, chamber groups and wind bands, including those from the local schools all taking part in the Festival Hall built for the purpose in 1935.

We’re run by volunteers
Petersfield Musical Festival is registered as a charity and run by a committee of trustees who all volunteer their time and benefits, under the musical guidance of its President, Jonathan Willcocks and the Festival Conductor, Paul Spicer who often leads the choral workshop in September.
Funding is received from Petersfield Town Council, East Hampshire District Council, Hampshire County Council with additional support from local sponsors, advertisers and donors.
