About the festival 

Welcome to Hastings Chamber Music Festival 2024. At the heart of the Festival is the desire to bring together the highest calibre musicians for performances of some of the most deeply expressive music. Artistic director, violinist Jane Gordon, invites to Hastings a wonderful line up of Europe’s most prestigious chamber musicians, frequently heard on BBC Radio 3 and in the finest concert halls such as the Wigmore Hall, Berlin Philharmonie, Vienna Konzerthaus, Carnegie Hall, Glyndebourne Opera and more.

Our ethos is to create time and space to share with audiences incredible chamber music, both well known and less familiar. Throughout the festival we feature ‘artist in conversation’ Q & A events and opportunities to meet the players after the concerts.

“Inspired by the music we love and the art of live performance, I want to engage our listeners to contemplate the significance and relevance the Arts can hold in our culture today. We aim to give music a platform to connect to wider topics relevant to today’s cultural and political landscape.” – Jane Gordon, artistic director
