Summer sunset

Our last event of the spring/summer 2022 season was a Summer Serenade with young singers and instrumentalists from the Taplow Choirs.  As with all our concerts, you can see pictures on the "Galleries of Past Concerts" tab.  The future of Music in Marlow is a little uncertain at the moment so we are not able to announce any future dates, but check back later.

Music in Marlow


Who we are

MusicInMarlow has been run for a decade on a voluntary basis by Martin and Jean Ashford, out of our love of music and our association with Christ Church URC, of which this is a project. Christ Church was built in 1840 and beautifully modernised in 2002-3.


We started our regular concert programme in 2012 and, by the summer of 2022, had run 75 events in all.  It's been wonderful!

What we do

We put on the kinds of music that we enjoy hearing! That includes instrumental recitals, chamber music, jazz, choral and occasionally other genres.


We bring professional musicians to the town but also provide a platform for young and amateur players. Suggestions welcome - and do get in touch if you would like to offer us a performance.

About us


Your support

Proceeds from tickets may be used to pay the musicians, to cover the costs of publicity, and where shown to raise money for specified causes such as Christian Aid.


Any remaining profit is donated to the church, for the Music Fund or New Project Fund. We funded purchase of the church's 1901 Bechstein grand piano and contributed to the 2021 'Walk of Life' project in the garden.

Jean and Martin Ashford, who have run Music in Marlow, are planning to move away from the town.  Simon Davie has offered to keep music going at Christ Church and we hope to have more news on that in due course.  For the moment, we have no future events to announce.
