The Winchester Festival of the Arts is a week-long series of concerts, performances, talks, exhibitions and guided walks in and around the ancient cathedral city of Winchester.

Our 2016 events programme included Brahms’ German Requiem in the fittingly grand surroundings of Winchester Cathedral; including Fauré’s exquisite Requiem, Michael Morpurgo on the inspiration behind his stories; a staged reading of Shakespeare's Venus and Adonis; history from world-renowned Antony Beevor and Professor Alice Roberts; a cappella singing from award-winning choir Sansara, national treasure Sandi Toksvig in conversation with John Lloyd; Red Priest’s breathtaking interpretation of baroque repertoire; Robert Hardy on stage as Sir Winston Churchill; and a gloriously colourful closing performance of Britten’s community opera Noye’s Fludde.
