STEVEN PIMLOTT’S LEGACY

The Pimlott Foundation was established 2007 in memory of Steven Pimlott, inspired by his versatility, passion and love of music making. The Foundation’s aim is to bring together aspiring performers with professionals.  We promote concerts and live events whilst also delivering an educational programme which supports performing arts locally.

YOUNG MUSICIANS’ CONCERT SERIES

Are you a talented young musician, or do you have a family member or friend who is?  Would a concert be good experience and help in promoting or furthering your musical career? The Pimlott Foundation can help by offering Old House Barn as a venue, and help publicising your concert. If you are interested in joining our Young Musicians’ Concert Series, email Daniela Bechly or Helen Thorne for details.
