"The Tilford Bach Festival is held annually in the Great Hall of Farnham Castle and All Saints Church Tilford, near Farnham, Surrey, and specialises in performances of Baroque music using authentic instruments and orchestration.
Denys Darlow, who established the Tilford Bach Society in 1952, directed the London Handel Festival and became well known as a conductor and interpreter of 17th and 18th century music. Following the 50th Festival in 2002, Denys Darlow retired as Director. Laurence Cummings and Adrian Butterfield are now the Music Directors of the Society. Laurence works with many well-known period ensembles as director, conductor and harpsichord player and Adrian is a very prominent baroque violin player and teacher.
Throughout the year the TBS organises concerts of baroque, classical and contemporary music played by young and exciting professional musicians in the Great Hall of Farnham Castle. Temporary members are welcome at all concerts. " Visit website for more information. (ed.)
