AYLESBURY Festival is looking for performers to take part in a ‘marathon of music making’ at Claydon House.

The 26-hour event will begin at 10.45am on Friday March 16.

It will feature performances by orchestras and choirs, singer-songwriters showcasing their latest work and there will be musical workshops and lessons – such as a ‘learn to play the ukulele’ class.

Organiser Richard Heason said: “The musical marathon is to raise funds for the Aylesbury Festival which will take place from July 6-15. Throughout the 26 hours there will be workshops and scratch performances by orchestras and choirs.

“There are many opportunities for solo performers alongside preformed groups.

“School groups are very welcome as well as adult performers. You do not need to be an athlete to take part in our musical marathon. Obviously, if you don’t want to take part, you can also just come along and listen.”
