Our 10th Festival will run from September 21st-3rd October 2020. Exciting plans are underway and full details will be available soon for another unique series of events held in historic venues in and around West Malling, Kent.
Founded in 2011 by Artistic Director Thomas Kemp, Music@Malling has a festival each September which features the music of contemporary composers alongside classical, jazz, vocal, world and film music and an outreach programme with a number of satellite events running across the year.
Music@Malling engages hundreds of young people in creative activities and performance, providing access to the arts, many for the first time. Our artists are involved in mentoring and supporting emerging musicians and composers from across Kent.
Music@Malling aims to create an outstanding artistic resource for the local area, region and beyond. Our tenth festival promises to be a special and memorable series of events in an area rich with history and outstanding natural beauty.
