The Oundle International Festival gets into gear this weekend and all next week, with dozens of performances across the town.

The festival combines jazz, folk and world music alongside classical performances.

Tomorrow, Tasmin Little will perform with the European Union Chamber Orchestra.

She has played with many of the world’s greatest orchestras and directed orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic, Seattle Symphony and Norwegian Chamber Orchestra.

She plays at the Oundle School Chapel at 7pm. Tickets cost from £16.

On Sunday, Richard Stuart will perform a light-hearted evening of song at the Stahl Theatre.

Doors open at 7.30m and tickets cost £14.

Next week, Becky Taylor will give a lunchtime recital at the Queen Victoria Hall at 1.30pm. The 16-year-old was the 2012 winner of the Oundle Festival of Music and Drama.

She has participated in many national music courses and, when time allows, she enjoys playing in local orchestras. Becky is also a very accomplished pianist, viola player and composer.

On Sunday, July 21, BBC Radio 4’s Morning Service will be broadcast from the Oundle School Chapel from 8am. This will feature contributions from Oundle for Organist students, the Festival Chorus and Jesus College Choir.
