CLASSICAL VAUXHALL

Bringing outstanding new and established artists to Vauxhall

Classical Vauxhall launched in 2019, bringing outstanding new and established artists to Vauxhall. The series is inspired by the visionary Jonathan Tyers, who opened the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens to make entertainment accessible to everyone.

Funded by Vauxhall One and run by Artistic Director Fiachra Garvey, the festival has now expanded to include 5 distinct performances, each with its own theme, spread over 4 days in St Mark’s Church, Vauxhall.

WEST WICKLOW FESTIVAL

Bringing the riches of wonderful artists from Ireland and abroad to West Wicklow, for the enjoyment of all

The West Wicklow Chamber Music Festival brings the most exciting and passionate artists from Ireland and abroad to beautiful West Wicklow, for the enjoyment of all.

Fiachra Garvey, the festival’s founder and artistic director, grew up as a pianist and farmer in Ballyknockan, West Wicklow, on the glistening Blessington Lakes. Having performed in festivals all over the world, his desire to establish a festival in his native Wicklow was realised in 2017. Since then, the West Wicklow Chamber Music Festival has grown to include a flagship festival each May, and a Winter Weekend of concerts each November.

Russborough House, one of Ireland’s most historic and iconic Palladian houses, and St. Mary’s Church Blessington, are fitting venues, with their intimate surroundings, fascinating history and long association with music.
