“A really great day! My daughter came away feeling inspired and challenged… the informal concert in such a special place was wonderful.”


Plush Young Musicians Workshop is an annual event bringing together local music students aged 11-18 for a day of coaching, masterclasses and ensemble playing lead by Plush Festival director Adrian Brendel and visiting professional musicians.

The workshop is designed to spark new connections and enthuse young musicians with the joy of chamber music. All activities take place in the inspiring location of Plush Manor and St John’s chapel, just a short stroll across the garden.

Young musicians are encouraged to join us as volunteers at our festival events (from 5pm until approx 10pm). This is a great opportunity to listen to exceptional performances, meet musicians and learn new skills in a friendly environment.

Check back here in the new year for information on our 2018 workshop.
