Welcome

We present six concerts a year and aim to create a regional centre of musical excellence in Powderham Castle.

Very sadly, due to the latest government announcement on Oct 31st, we now have to cancel our concert by the Willshire Piano Duo on November 13th. Music in the Castle has also decided that it is advisable to also cancel our final concert of the year on Friday December 18th.  We WILL be back in 2021 and with a fantastic line up of superb musicians for you. Details will be posted here in due course. Stay safe everybody - we miss you!

‘Music in the Castle’

Registered Charity no: 1187306

During the final year in Higher Education, all UK Conservatoires, Universities and Specialist Music Schools are keen to identify quality concert locations for their best graduate instrumentalists and opera students.

For at least three concerts each year, Powderham Castle’s very impressive James Wyatt Music Room is now being used as a Concert Hall launchpad for the very best instrumental and opera students – performers of a standard associated with BBC TV’s Young Musician series or BBC3’s ‘New Generation Artists’ programmes.

All UK Conservatoires & Specialist Music Schools have warmly embraced this initiative. By encouraging gifted young instrumentalists from across the UK and abroad, these special concerts will play an important part in ensuring the future of classical music.
