The Annual Marylebone Music Festival, in aid of the West London Mission, is back in its sixth year, bringing local communities together safely to celebrate through music. Back this year as a physical event, the festival will be held on 24th-26th June 2021 in the historic Manchester Square Gardens.
This year’s audience will be treated to concerts by Ronnie Scott’s ‘Classical Kicks’, orchestral ‘Peter and the Wolf’ conducted by Sue Perkins and ‘A Night at the Opera’ with soloists from The Royal Opera House and English National Opera.
The triumphant finale will be at the Marylebone Pleasure Gardens which revives the historic Pleasure Gardens held over 300 years ago. This year, all events will be hosted in Manchester Square Gardens, transformed into a covered concert venue.
Since the first Marylebone Music Festival in 2016, over £31,000 has been raised for charity.
Meghan Cassidy, Artistic Director, says: “The past year has been incredibly hard for us all and we’ve come to appreciate local communities more than ever. We hope by hosting this historic Festival again over a two-day period we are able to celebrate together safely through the joy of music.”
“Each year, we aim to bring world class musical artists together and this year is no different. I have been blown away by the support and enthusiasm we have received this year. We simply could not do this without the support of the local community, partners and fellow artists.”
The two-day Festival was founded by Cassidy, inspired by historical ties and a passion to bring music from a wide range of genres to the community. Partners include: Marylebone Square and Howard de Walden Estate and The Portman Estate.
