Mill Hill Music Festival 2017
June 16 @ 8:00 am - June 24 @ 11:00 pm
The Twelfth Mill Hill Music Festival will take place from 16th – 24th June 2017. Every other summer since 1995 North West London comes alive to the sound of some of the best music to be heard anywhere in the country.
Held in various locations around Mill Hill, the Festival is run by unpaid volunteers on a not-for-profit basis. As has been the case since the Festival’s inception, our 2017 programme continues to reflect our founding principles. We are delighted to offer opportunities for local groups and musicians, such as the always sublime Hendon Band of the Salvation Army on our opening night and a very special not-to-be-missed evening of music from The BBC Elstree Concert Band who will be playing a selection of popular musical numbers on Saturday 17th June. We are also very excited about our wonderful night with Balalaika at Mill Hill Synagogue on Monday 19th June.
As with our last Festival, we are very pleased to be able to make use of Hartley Hall on Flower Lane for several of our concerts this year. Amongst other events we are honoured to present critically acclaimed opera company, Pop-Up Opera on Tuesday 20th June. They will be performing Domenico Cimarosa’s ‘Il matrimonio segreto’ (The Secret Marriage).
It wouldn’t be the Mill Hill Music Festival without a fantastic evening of jazz. This year we will be paying tribute to the 1960’s swinging big band of legendary baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan on Thursday 22nd June with Robert Fowler’s Concert Jazz Band Tribute.
As always we will have a selection of Later@ evenings at local pubs and a fantastic evening of rock and roll classics from Recollection and our headline ska band, The Silencerz at Mill Hill Golf Club on Friday 23rd June. Mill Hill Jazz Club will also be putting on a special evening with vocalist Kevin Fitzsimmons on Wednesday 21st June at the same location.
We would like to thank Mill Hill Music Complex for their sponsorship, Mill Hill Wines for their help and ticket sales and our many friends for all their support. We hope you will take time this summer to enjoy some wonderful music with us.
