Welcome to Music@Malling - a festival featuring outstanding musicians in historic venues in and around West Malling, Kent.

The festival promotes the work of contemporary composers alongside the classics and engages the community with the highest quality of creative work in a series of concerts, talks, education and outreach events.

The third annual Music@Malling Festival, taking place between Thursday 26th and Sunday 29th September, celebrates the 100th anniversary of Benjamin Britten and explores the composers who he championed as a performer.

Each year Music@Malling profiles the works of outstanding contemporary composers and in 2013 these are Arvo Pärt and the brilliant young composer and clarinettist Mark Simpson.
