Classical Concerts with International Musicians

Burford Lenthall Concerts

The Lenthall Concerts have been bringing music of outstanding quality to West Oxfordshire since 1992. Under the direction of Michael Bochmann, each winter season of six concerts brings a mixture of internationally established artists to Burford.

This year we are delighted to welcome musicians from across the UK and we look forward to a varied programme of exceptional quality.


Six concerts are held during the 2023-24 season from October 23 to March 24. Concerts take place at 7:00pm at Burford School and the informality of the school setting creates an atmosphere for each concert which is intimate and engaging. 

Individual concert tickets are £20 each for adults and free for students and under 16's, alternatively you can purchase a season ticket for £60 for the remaining concerts. Tickets are available to purchase by post by downloading and completing the booking form here or online
