North West Recorder Festival


Est. 2013


Dear Players and Lovers of the Recorder

North West Recorder Festival 2019 was held at St Martin’s Church, 112 Crescent Park, Heaton Norris, Stockport, SK4 2JE on the 16th November 2019

Our Adjudicator was Lucy Carr BMus Hons and Official Accompanist Anne Sutcliffe, many thanks to both for their hard work during the day.

What a day! The Recorder Players of Stockport certainly shone brightly with marks ranging from 80 – 89

There were a small number of classes for other instruments including Piano Guitar Violin & Saxophone (green!) with 3 bears bringing the Festival to a remarkable close at 3.30pm.

We were entertained by Alison Burns (Cello) & Iwan Owen (Piano) for a remarkable Lunchtime Recital, both of whom are local to Manchester – thank you

Our Catering Ladies surpassed themselves with a lot of us piling on the calories

So many thanks to Rev. Will Robie (St Martins Church and the PCC) for allowing us use of the church.

Above all thank you to all the music pupils who put a huge amount of effort into their performances, their teachers  and Parents who encouraged them

I would very much like to thank our continued sponsors this year for enabling me to carry on running this exciting new Festival: WALTER BERGMAN FUND

So Goodbye for now:

NWRF will return in 2020

Our Web Manager, David Morgan, has set up a web site for the Festival  please have a browse around the site and keep watching for the new program in 2020.
