Worcester Music Festival – a metropolitan festival supporting emerging artists and raising money for charity – returns for the eleventh consecutive year from September 13-15, 2019.

The festival takes place in more than 20 venues in Worcester City Centre, hosting around 250 bands over 3 days as well as a number of workshops.

A non-profit making event, it is run by an enthusiastic team of volunteers who all give their time for free to support live music, encourage new audiences to visit new venues and help to make live music accessible to more people.

With live music across the city, from pubs, clubs, restaurants and cafes to historic buildings, record shops, on the streets and even in breweries, the festival is absolutely FREE to attend. Our team of promoters put on hundreds of gigs, showcasing some of the best, new and emerging artists in the UK.

This year, Royal Porcelain Works are host to a number of events and activities during the Music Festival, including:

Friday 13th September, 7:30pm-10:30pm
A one-off comedy night, featuring some fantastic acts:

“I was shocked and appalled by Celya’s sharp and annoyingly observant gags. An exciting and promising writer.” – Joe Lycett.

Finalist for Jason Manford’s New Act of the Year.

‘Dynamite performance, had the crowd in stitches’ – Genius Events & PR.

‘Solidly funny… anyone who can make a heart attack funny must have something going for them.’ – Steve Bennett, Chortle.

‘Turns life’s struggles into brilliantly understated observed gags’ – Joe Lycett.
‘Mastered using his quiet delivery to his advantage, drawing people in and making his great punchlines hit even harder. Highly recommend’ – The Stand Comedy Club.
‘Hilarious and from Dudley!’ – Lenny Henry.

The night is FREE AND NON-TICKETED but donations to the festivals charity are welcome. This year’s charity is the Worcester Foodbank, a really incredible cause.

Words & Music
Saturday 14th September, 3pm-5pm
A workshop that sees musicians and poets paired together for an impromptu project.

Poets are invited to bring their words while musicians can bring their acoustic instruments, and they will be randomly paired together and given just fifteen minutes to match their art forms into something they can perform. Hosted by Worcestershire Poet Laureate, Charley Barnes, this promises to be an afternoon of laughter and light-hearted entertainment for all involved!

The Token Poetry Event
Saturday 14th September, 7:30pm-9pm
Hosted by Worcestershire Poet Laureate, Charley Barnes, who will be welcoming up a lively crowd to take their turn on the open mic.

Alongside this, WMF is welcoming award-winning performance poet Jasmine Gardosi down from Birmingham to take to the stage as our headliner!

All Worcester Music Festival gigs and workshops are FREE to attend. However, they would ask you to show your appreciation and make a donation towards their supported charity of 2019.

Worcester has excellent road links to the major motorways. The M5 runs north-south immediately to the east of the City, and is accessed by Junction 6 (Worcester North) and Junction 7 (Worcester South). This makes the festival easily accessible by car from most parts of the country, including London which is only 120 miles away via the M5, M42 and M40. There’s more than one train station in Worcester but Foregate Street is your best option because it’s right in the middle of the action. More travel info is available here.

Popular options include St. Martin’s GateCrownGateKing Street, and Copenhagen Street. All of these are within a few minutes’ walk of the City centre. For further information about Worcester Council car parks click here.

The majority of venues taking part in the festival are located around the centre of Worcester, made up of pubs, clubs, cafes, community buildings, boats, churches, record shops and street performances.

The live music starts at 6pm on Friday and finishes at midnight. On Saturday and Sunday, it starts at midday and finishes at midnight.

Yes. Worcester Music Festival runs from Friday evening right through to the end of the day on Sunday. There are workshops suitable for all ages throughout the weekend, so there is no better time for families and music fans to visit the City. Kids will love the live music but it’s probably the workshops where they’ll really get the chance to let loose and have fun.

Most of the venues will have soft drinks for the kids and a selection of stronger options for the adults. There’ll be no shortage of food outlets with the festival being held across the city centre, plus several venues will be serving snacks and meals while you enjoy the music. Look out for Worcester Music Festival’s very own ‘Festival Ale’ – available exclusively at specially selected venues over the weekend.

Worcester has two Premier Inn and several other hotels, plus plenty of bed and breakfast accommodation in and around the city. The closest accommodation to Royal Porcelain Works is the Diglis House Hotel.
