In 2012 the chancel roof at St Mary’s Whinburgh, a small village on the outskirts of Dereham, was in need of urgent repairs and funds were required to supplement an English Heritage grant. And so the Whinburgh Music Festival was born to help find the money for the repairs.
From its early days it has grown, its reputation flourished and is now firmly established in the local music event calendar, bringing vibrant and top quality performances to the Norfolk countryside. Funds are still raised for the church and a willing band of volunteers help make this event the success it is.
