The return of Semley Music Festival


Semley’s third community music festival will take place in early July on Church Green, with it’s usual ambitious plan to bring outstanding musicians who represent a broad range of musical influences to a tiny rural community.
The festival starts on Friday 5th July with music from 7pm to 11.30pm, and then continues from noon until midnight on Saturday 6th July with a packed programme of musicians, reflecting a wide variety of genres from jazz and Brazilian salsa to R&B.
Semley Music Festival is a not-for-profit community event. and the organiser’s aim is to involve all ages and backgrounds, whether as volunteers, audience or participants, to offer a rich variety of cultural experiences and the opportunity to develop creative skills.
Several local village schools will host samba drumming workshops run by the Brazilian band for a performance to launch the festival.
Local charity Seeds4Success will be hosting stalls selling items they have made, running art activities for children and helping with hospitality for guests.
Proceeds from the festival will be donated to the charity, which helps young people to access programmes that develop practical skills, enhance education, improve employability, conserve the natural environment and strengthen the local community.
