Adrian ButterfieldWelcome to the Tilford Bach Society! We have been running top quality concerts in Farnham and Tilford since 1952. We organise a period instrument festival each June in Tilford Church with internationally famous performers and regular monthly concerts from September to April in Farnham.

All our concerts are open to the public and you can buy tickets on-line from this website. We are a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) and especially welcome young people and for our Farnham concerts entry for 8-25 year olds is FREE through CAVATINA. Accompanying parents and teachers to may also attend FREE – details HERE. Our Music Director is Adrian Butterfield, who is professor of baroque violin at the Royal College of Music.

From 25 April 2017 until further notice there will be a period of parallel running of the two organisations during which all events will be run by Tilford Bach Society (CIO) but income may be received by either organisation and income received by Tilford Bach Society will be forwarded to Tilford Bach Society (CIO). The intention is eventually to cease and de-register Tilford Bach Society and continue only with Tilford Bach Society (CIO).
