There have been some amazingly wonderful concerts at Aysgarth church during 2023 thanks to the Swaledale Festival and to the Wensleydale Concert Series (WCS). There was breathtakingly exquisite and poetic oboe playing by Nicholas Daniel at the final concert of the WCS 2023 series on September 16 beautifully accompanied on the piano by Huw Watkins. It is an honour to have so many world-class musicians performing at the church. 

The Jervaulx Singers will open the new WCS season with a concert at St Andrew's on May 11th 2024. For details of all seven concerts click here.

There will be six Swaledale Festival concerts at St Andrew's from May 26 to June 6 2024.
