The 11th North Norfolk Music Festival, based in  St Mary's Church, South Creake, Norfolk, starts on 11 August 2015 and runs until 22 August. Directed by Simon Rowland-Jones and Barry Cheesman, the festival is an amazing eruption of chamber music and song in Norfolk, along with some rather good food. 

Performers include pianists Yevgeny Sudbin, Daniel Ciobanu, Tim Horton and Tom Poster, the Marmen String Quartet, the Navarra String Quartet, Leonore Piano Trio, Lendvai String Trio, Arcadia String Quartet.

Baritone Benjamin Appl performs Schubert's Die Winterreise accompanied by Gary Matthewman,  tenor Joshua Ellicott performs Schubert's Schwanengesang with Liszt and Finzi accompanied by Simon Lepper, and an appearance from Jacqui Dankworth and David Gordon. 12 Ensemble returns to the festival performing John Woolrich's Ulysses Awakes with Mozart and Vivaldi. Many of the concerts are preceded by Festival Dinners in a marquee in the church yard.
