We are delighted to announce that three of the 2018 BBC Young Musicians of the Year will be performing for you at the Wooburn Festival in September and October this year.

They are Rob Burton, an 18 year old saxophonist from Cambridgeshire who won the woodwind category; 18 year old Maxim Calver, a cellist from Gorleston-on-Sea who won the strings category; and 17 year old pianist Lauren Zhang who won the keyboard category and was crowned the overall BBC Young Musician of the Year 2018.

In addition, we will have an evening with the ever-popular Heath Quartet, a performance of The Barber of Seville from the Barefoot Opera Company. The Jazz Evening this year includes an exciting and varied programme from the Zoe Francis/Jim Mullen quintet featuring Gareth Williams with supper provided by Chives of Bourne End.
