Great Comp and the Music Festival
In 1973 the late Roderick and Joy Cameron, who created Great Comp’s beautiful 7-acre garden, began holding concerts in the comfortable converted stable beside the 17th century manor house. From this grew the annual Festival – ‘a mini-Glyndebourne of chamber music’ – which quickly earned a reputation for the high quality of its concerts, performed by artists of international repute. The Festival is now run by a registered charity, the Great Comp Music Trust.
Great Comp’s very fine 7-acre garden is open to concert-goers from 6.00pm to picnic in or simply to enjoy. A special feature of the Festival is that after the concert the audience are invited to meet the artists over a cup of tea or coffee.
