About Winterplay

Winterplay is a mini-festival of classical chamber music drawing in a wide range of ages and abilities. It features concerts by top international musicians, a showcase for gifted teenagers, a workshop for primary school children, and a pre-concert talk. It is driven by Susan Tomes’s belief that classical music is not an ‘elite’ activity, but a precious resource that should be open to everyone.

Winterplay is supported by Harriet's Trust
