Can you help us make even more music?

Wirral Chamber Music Festival is a not-for-profit organisation with one aim: to spread the appreciation of chamber music across all of Wirral, by hosting a wide variety of events throughout the year. Ticket sales do not cover our costs and we rely on sponsorship and donations to make these events possible. If you too believe in the power of live music, please help us reach more people with even more music by making a small donation. Thank you!
