When you are surrounded by music and architecture of such beauty, you are given a release from the buzzing of your phone, the demands and stresses of daily life. Instead there is a stolen, valuable moment of peace.

The first concert in this series in the spring of 2023 created something quite special, a euphoria if you like. The sound of perfectly performed Cantatas by Bach, ringing out through the centuries old building was intoxicating.

Now the series continues into 2024, with monthly concerts in the beautiful surroundings of St Mary’s Church, Wingham.

Tickets sold by Gulbenkian Arts Centre on behalf of Wingham International Concert Series.


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
