Friday 8th - Sunday 10th 

September 2023


Westport Festival of Chamber Music has grown in the past nine 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 local supporters. We hugely encourage you to come and share a September weekend experience that is at once laidback and highly stimulating.

Our 2020 festival was due to present six concerts over three days but COVID 19 regulations, alas, meant that we were only able to present material online. We're delighted that we were able to return in 2021 with five concerts that took place 10-12th September in The Town Hall Theatre and Trinity Church.

For 2022 we're back in full flight. We have an incredibly interesting and diverse programme. We also have our school's programme giving students from a number of schools in the area the chance to learn about Chamber Music and attend events. For more details about our schools programme please email
