Shipley Arts Festival – Musical Inspiration lasting 21 years

See the Bernardi Music Group perform side by side with the String Academy as we celebrate and launch our 21st Anniversary year in this beautiful and historic church. Our programme includes our thanks to the late composer and performer John Ireland who rests at Shipley Parish Church. John Ireland continues to provide us with lasting inspiration as we celebrate our milestone anniversary, and extend our commitment to creating and performing music inspired by the communities of Sussex.
