Based around Holy Trinity Church, Stroud Green, the Stroud Green Festival is a local mini-explosion of early music, classical music, jazz and poetry in North London running from 18 to 28 June 2015. If you live within travelling distance of N4, then there are plenty of events work considering. Distinguished soprano Emma Kirkby performs lute songs with lutenist Jacob Heringman and they will be joined in the concert by a pair of young artists, soprano Gwendolen Martin and lutenist Toby Carr.

Also in the festival are the early music ensemble The Telling, with Climb Every Mountain 13th century style with lively 13th century Spanish music for pilgrims, Spiritato in Sound the Trumpet with music by Purcell, Corbett, Rebel and Matteis, and K'antu Ensemble will be bringing their distinctive mix of early music and world music. Concerts also include Pergolesi's Stabat Mater, as well as virtuoso violin sonatas, English 18th century pastoral music and a Summer evening of Jazz.

Stroud Green Festival is run by a team of local volunteers, including Tamara Romanyk and Clare Norburn who co-founded and built up the Brighton Early Music Festival. Further information at tickets from Eventbrite.
