The collection for charity at our carol concerts raised just over £1000, thank you. Happy Christmas to all! 


Welcome 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 charity and especially welcome young people and for many of our concerts entry for 8-25 year olds is FREE through CAVATINA. We also have a new trial scheme for parents and teachers to attend FREE.

Our Music Director is Adrian Butterfield, who is professor of baroque violin at the Royal College of Music. Read the recent interview with Adrian HERE.

We are twinned with Music-at-Hill in the City of London, who run regular concerts and a period instrument Bach Festival in July.
