"...for warmth and intimacy and glorious surroundings, Llanfyllin can scarcely be beaten" - The Allegri Quartet

The Gŵyl Gerdd Llanfyllin Music Festival

The 2022 Festival will take place 12-14 August, 50 years since the first concerts by the Allegri Quartet. See Concert Programme for details.

For just over 40 years, the Allegri String Quartet, Britain's longest running chamber music ensemble (founded in 1953) has been playing each summer to delighted audiences at St. Myllin's Church, Llanfyllin, in the heart of Mid Wales. Those first concerts held by the original quartet developed into the beatingheart of what is now the annual Llanfyllin Music Festival, or Gŵyl Gerdd Llanfyllin, as it is known locally.

Over the years, the Festival has expanded to include performances by other musicians and artists of international calibre. Sadly, the Allegri Quartet has disbanded, so the Festival is taking the opportunity to explore new directions. Our commitment to bringing high quality chamber music to Llanfyllin is unchanged, and we owe an enormous debt of thanks to the Allegri for their legacy.
