Brundibár Arts Festival is the only annual festival based in the UK dedicated to music and arts created by victims of the Holocaust. Based in Newcastle, the Festival takes place in January and every year showcases an incredible array of unjustly forgotten composers alongside well-loved works from the more mainstream repertoire. For this very special occasion, mirroring the 2021 Festival theme “Inspirational Women", Brundibár Ensemble is very excited to bring to St Mary Perivale a specially designed programme to celebrate “Women's International Day”.
