49 years ago, in the autumn of 1967, the first steps
were taken to start a Festival in the twelfth century church of St
Michael and All Angels, in Lower Machen. Then, as now, Lower Machen
itself was a rural idyll – just nineteen houses (no shop, not even a
pub!) with an incomparably beautiful small church, blessed with a
perfect acoustic.

In the intervening 49 years, little has changed and
next year sees our 50th Festival.
