Westport Festival of Chamber Music has grown in the past seven years into a cultural event that fits seamlessly into the Westport autumn, yet with an atmosphere and a following all of its own. Everything plays its part in this collaborative sharing between musicians, audience members, venues, organisers and other local supporters.

We hugely encourage you to come and share a September weekend experience that is at once laidback and highly stimulating. The 2020 festival was due to present six concerts over the three days, we'll be back in 2021 though with renewed vigour, we'll update you as the programmer evolves.  Should circumstances allow, we are still hoping to present our schools programme which will give students from a number of schools in the area the chance to learn about chamber music and attend events.

Westport Festival of Chamber Music is a registered charity CRO No. 20204019  CHY 22305
