NWA has been running its concert series in the Appleby district
since 1969 in various venues including, for many years, the town's
castle. It has been able to attract musicians from all over the UK
and beyond, many of whom are equally at home in the Bridgwater,
Carnegie or Wigmore Halls as they are in Appleby's more modest
There is a small committee of dedicated, voluntary members who work behind the scenes to bring a winter season programme of music to suit all tastes, all linked by the wish to bring musicians of the highest calibre to our lovely corner of the county. A loyal following of subscribing concert-goers helps underpin the ongoing success of the NWA series and it is further boosted by local arts funding bodies, acknowledged elsewhere here.
The concerts represent exceptional value for money, particularly when a season ticket is bought for the whole series.
We now have our own public Facebook page - do visit this and please "like" us too; this all helps us to build audinece numbers.

This year we have 6 concerts to offer as the "extra" one is the appearance of oboist, Nicholas Daniel and his Britten Oboe Quartet after we had to abandon his planned concert last December when storm Desmond hit Appleby and led to the River Eden cuting the town in two.
