Berwick Music Series (BMS) is organised by Berwick-upon-Tweed Educational Association, in association with artistic director, Prof. Michael Worboys.

The aim of BMS is to celebrate classical and contemporary music played by small ensembles, such as string quartets.

BMS features established and recent music played by nationally and internationally known performers.

There is also the opportunity to showcase work by composers and performers from the North East.

The principal venue for BMS concerts is the Berwick Watchtower, well-known for its collection of the art of Ian Stephenson and for its lovely acoustic properties.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are delaying announcements regarding the 2020 season until the situation becomes clearer. 

Keep safe!
