Midlands Early Music Forum 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.

MEMF brings together amateur and professional musicians, singers and dancers, researchers, teachers and pupils, instrument makers, costumiers, and enthusiasts in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Our workshop programme is open to anybody with an interest in early music, and concentrates on music from the mediaeval, renaissance (A440 pitch) and baroque (A415 pitch) periods.


MEMF is well into booking a programme of workshops for 2024. There is plenty of variety to look forward to including several Tutors new to us, as well as others back by popular demand.

We have a new page of non-MEMF early music events (concerts, courses, festivals, etc) in the Midlands area. This is regularly updated so may include events not seen in the Newsletter diary.

A comprehensive new website with details of all the National Early Music participatory events (workshops, courses, festivals, etc) round the country is well worth a visit.

Also Continuo Connect lists many interesting concerts by up and coming ensembles round the country that have been supported by the Continuo Foundation.

There is still some innovative and interesting early music online on this site to listen to with information about Instrumental Teachers, who may continue to teach online, and many musical treats!
