Events, Festivals and Concerts

There's a thriving arts scene in and around Marlborough

MUSIC

For music lovers, the Marlborough College Concert Series brings classical performances to the recently-refurbished Memorial Hall throughout the year. Since 1999 Marlborough Folk Roots has been presenting the finest folk and roots music at venues as diverse as the Town Hall, churches, church halls, schools and theatres, and independent record store Sound Knowledge puts on occasional concerts too. Mantonfest and Avebury Rocks are annual outdoor music fixtures, while St Peter's Church plays host to occasional music recitals, talks and art exhibitions. Local pubs often have live music at the weekend too.

ART

Art exhibitions as well as hands-on workshops take place at the gallery at the White Horse Bookshop, and there are occasional exhibitions at the Mount House Gallery at Marlborough College, modern art at Katharine House Gallery and the Town Hall. Just outside Marlborough and in a stunning setting, Rabley Gallery and Drawing Centre also holds exhibitions. During July a host of local artists open up their studios as part of the Open Studios art trail, a wonderful way to explore the area.

Literature

Book lovers aren't forgotten either, with the Marlborough Literature Festival held every autumn

We've listed the major events here, but please do check our online calendar for details of all events taking place at the Town Hall and other venues in and around the town
