A WELL-established classical music week which has been going for more than 25 years returns next month. 

Farley Music Festival, held at All Saints' Church in Farley, is back and this year runs from June 18 to June 23.

The festival was established about twenty-six years ago by Richard Godfrey, his wife Jane, and the Salisbury-based pianist Nicholas Walker, who also teaches at the Royal Academy of Music.

Initially conceived to give concert experience to young musicians, over recent years the musical scope of the Farley Music Festival has been widened, while still remaining true to the original aims.
