About MEMF

IMG_2744Midlands Early Music Forum is an organisation which exists to promote all aspects of early music in the Midlands of England. It is one of a number of regional fora, which between them cover most areas of the UK. Each forum was set up by a group of enthusiasts, and each has its own aims and aspirations. We are members of Making Music

MEMF is an open forum. It brings together amateur and professional musicians, singers and dancers, researchers, teachers and pupils, instrument makers, costumiers, and enthusiasts. At a recent Annual General Meeting, one of our newer members commented on what a friendly and welcoming atmosphere she experienced at workshops.

Robert Hollingworth Tutors a Bach weekend eventWe concentrate on music from the Mediaeval, Renaissance and Baroque periods. We’re very proud of our workshop programme which aims to provide opportunities across this wide spectrum of historic creativity. Recent workshop tutors have included Philip Thorby, Jeffrey Skidmore, Roger Hollingworth and Steven Devine to name only a few.

See our Events Diary for details of upcoming events. We aim to use venues which are in reach of public transport and in different locations around the Midlands area so there should be something you can get to. And in a bid to encourage the next generation, Students can come free of charge.

Find us on  Facebook where you are welcome to upload your own reviews or photos of our events.

We hope to see you soon!

Such a Privilege!

We have already had three stunning  workshops this year with Robert Hollingworth, Sally Dunkley and David Hatcher. What a privilege to work with such amazing Tutors, and it was good to see such a large turnout for all of them. The year continues with Paul Spicer introducing us to Dominique Phinot later this month, ‘Lions of St Marks’ with Jamie Savan (a well known Tutor, but new to MEMF) in May and the welcome return of Theresa Caudle for a string workshop in June. Get booking!
