The 2020 Gloucester Music Festival will run from Wednesday 10th June to Sunday 14th June. Five days of world-class music events, in beautiful venues across the city. This year’s Festival is our fifth outing and will be our biggest yet.

There will be, amongst other events: musical yoga, lunchtime recitals, buskers, community singing, jazz, rock bands, opera, and much more. We will also be commemorating some anniversaries in Gloucester – more details soon.

We hope you can join us for some or all the events during the Festival.

About Us

We founded Creative Field in 2016 as an umbrella for our various musical and cultural activities in Gloucester and the surrounding area. Under this umbrella sit choirs, singers, musicians, artists and writers.

We have choirs such as Gaudeamus, a professional vocal ensemble which performs a wide variety of music from sacred to secular. City of Gloucester Community Choir are on hand to sing at local charity and civic events, and we also co-run the Vocality Youth Choir, a choir for young people in the Gloucestershire area.

We have associations with local churches including St John’s Northgate Church and St Mary de Crypt Church. From March 2019 we will be ‘in-house’ musicians at St Mary de Crypt, staging concerts, recitals, music for services and festivals. Locally we have been involved in several events in the city in recent years such as the Richard III Festival, the SPACES Gloucester project, and the Æthelflæd Festival.

For three years we have run the Gloucester Music Festival, a week to ten days of music making, which has been completely free to the public. The GMF involves the whole community, and features a wide variety of musical styles and genres. We are extremely grateful to the Rotary Club of Gloucester, Gloucester BID, Ecclesiastical, Nettl and Marketing Gloucester for their generous support. We frequently perform together as a soprano and countertenor duo, and recent performances have ranged from Purcell and Pergolesi to Handel opera arias and duets, as well as recitals of selections from the ABRSM Singing syllabus!
