The Eleventh Mill Hill Music Festival
12th June – 20th June 2015
Welcome to the Mill Hill Music Festival website.
The 11th Mill Hill Music Festival is over for this year. It has been an amazing turn out for this year’s Festival with nearly every event being sold out. We haven’t quite calculated all the numbers yet but we believe it must be over 2000 people who attended this year’s Festival and Mill Hill was definitely alive with the sound of music!
We hope you enjoyed this year’s Festival. If you could “like” us on Facebook that would be great – Thank you again:
For those of you that don’t know, every alternate 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 2015 programme continued to reflect our founding principles. We continued to offer opportunities for local groups and musicians, such as the superb 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 played a selection of popular film and show music on Saturday 13th June. We were also proud to present a wonderful night of klezmer with Shir on Monday 15th June, a scintillating evening with The Hermitage String Quartet with soprano Carola Darwin on Wednesday 17th June and not forgetting ukulele band JJ and the Ukettes who played a fantastic evening of music at our opening night.
We were also thrilled to be able to make use of the recently rebuilt Hartley Hall on Flower Lane for several of our concerts this year, where we will welcomed back OperaUpClose on Tuesday 16th June. We also had a wonderful celebration of 100 Years of Jazz in 99 Minutes on Thursday 18th June with The Jazz Repertory Company. As always we had a selection of Later@ evenings at local pubs and a fantastic evening of rock and roll classics with a sensational tribute to Bruce Springsteen at Mill Hill Golf Club on Friday 19th June by The Boss UK. Mill Hill Jazz Club, now in its 16th year, had a very special evening with vocalist Anita Wardell on Wednesday 17th June, also at the Golf Club. Our party night on the 20th June had two awesome bands – Misdemeanour and Joe Angel and the Pamodzi Band who both brought the house down and packed The Three Hammers Pub out to the gills!
We would like to thank the Mill Hill Music Complex for their sponsorship, Mill Hill Wines for their help and ticket sales and our many friends for all their support. And of course a big thank you to those of you who came to this year’s Festival. We hope you enjoyed it and perhaps we will see you again in 2 year’s at the next Festival…
