Welcome to Penkhull Festival
Established in 1966, Penkhull Festival is a classical music and arts festival which takes place in Stoke-on-Trent each September. The festival's home is the historic Domesday village of Penkhull, surrounded by the rolling countryside of the Staffordshire moorlands.
Performers in recent years have included Voces8, the Tippett Quartet, Robert Thompson, Swansea Bach Choir, Jocelyn Freeman, Thomas Isherwood, Jonathan Fisher, Miriam Wakeling, Christopher Guild, and Equinox Saxophone Ensemble.
We hope you enjoy exploring the website, and look forward to welcoming you to one of our events.
