With just one year to go until RVW’s 150th birthday, 2022-23 will see a spread of festivities, co-ordinated by our sister charity, the Vaughan Williams Charitable Trust, which celebrate the enormous impact his work had on musical life in the UK.

Together with a comprehensive programme of his work, presented throughout the UK and internationally, we’ll also be announcing a series of new works inspired by or responding to, the music, ideas or life of Vaughan Williams.
