Welcome to the Madingley Concerts
A series of free concerts given by leading University instrumentalists
The Madingley Concerts take place at Madingley Hall, home of the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education (ICE). The concerts complement the Madingley Lecture series, and are designed to showcase new student work alongside more traditional repertoire.
