Welcome to “TBS” – the Tilford Bach Society! We have been running top quality concerts in Farnham and Tilford since 1952. We now include Farnham Sinfonia and a series of Conservatoire Concerts in Godalming, which aims to provide performance opportunities for students and young professionals.
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. A parent or teacher accompanying a child under 16 may also attend FREE – details HERE. Our Music Director is Adrian Butterfield, who is professor of baroque violin at the Royal College of Music.
