The Penkhull Festival has brought world class music to the area since 1966. The wonderful tradition created by Miss May Walley MBE and The Bedford Singers over a period of 39 years, is being continued by Artistic Director, Greg Hallam. His aim is to source some of the finest musicians of today and tomorrow, and bring them to Stoke-on-Trent.
The financial support provided by our Friends' and Patrons' Annual Subscriptions, alongside some private Sponsorship, enables the Festival to present concerts at very affordable prices - bringing to the Potteries some of the best professional musicians who are commencing their careers. So, our audiences don't have to travel great distances - and avoid paying much higher ticket prices.
With help from Friends and Patrons, along with other sponsorship, The Penkhull Festival brings concerts to the people of The Potteries at an affordable price. Each performance makes a financial loss in order to bring artists which you would otherwise have to travel to Manchester, Birmingham or London to see and hear.
The welcoming community at St Thomas’s Church in the heart of Penkhull hosts each concert and recital.
This year's Festival runs from Thursday 22nd – Saturday 24th September 2016, see here for details.
The Penkhull Festival is very grateful for the businesses and private sponsors who support the aims of the Festival.
