44th Churchill Memorial Concert Saturday 7th April 2018

The Churchill Memorial Concert is a biannual event and the next Concert to be held will be on Saturday 7th April 2018. The purpose of the Concerts are to celebrate the life and achievements of Sir Winston Churchill and to benefit local and national charities.

The Guest Speaker this year is Earl Spencer with music by the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra.


Check the Concert Website for Information & Ticket Options


The Churchill Memorial Concerts Trust was established in 1993 to expand the range of distribution of the proceeds of the Churchill Memorial Concerts. These concerts were conceived as a means of providing funds for the Music Therapy Charity and continued to do so exclusively until 1993. It was then decided to bring other charities into the net whilst continuing to support Music Therapy Charity, the policy of the Trustees being that the charitable purposes should be primarily (though not exclusively) for Oxfordshire and be of the smaller variety, for which local funding is a crucial element.
