Director of Music at Pembroke College Cambridge, Anna Lapwood is also in demand worldwide as a harpist, conductor and broadcaster, but it is in her capacity as concert organist that she brings this insightful and varied programme with an angelic theme to the glorious Cheltenham College Chapel. In this atmospheric, candle-lit recital, she celebrates music for organ, with a performance of Patrick Gowers’ Toccata, first premiered at the Festival five decades ago, with works by Britten, Elgar and Messiaen, through to David Matthews, Judith Bingham and a world premiere from Composer Academy alumnus Daniel Fardon.


Cheltenham College Chapel

This magnificent building, with its glorious soaring architecture, provides an atmospheric venue for Cheltenham Festivals performances. With a seating capacity of 500, the Late Victorian Gothic chapel is externally based on the chapel of King’s College, Cambridge.

The venue ideally lends itself to choirs and brass ensembles, with its stunning acoustic and fabulous Harrison organ.
