Be part of a truly international music Festival in the High Peak

Glossop Music Festival has quickly established itself as an annual fixture in the classical music calendar for audiences and musicians alike.

We offer a week-long Summer Festival together with one-off Chamber concerts throughout the year for the people of Glossop and High Peak.

Thanks to the support of our current Friends and Sponsors we have been able to grow the Festival, as well as develop our educational activities with local schools.

As a registered charity, our ticket income only covers around half our annual operating costs. By becoming a Friend of GMF, you can make a real difference to the cultural offering in Glossop, as well as help us deliver high quality educational programme for schools in the area.
