On the opening day of IIMF’s rescheduled 2021 programme, Investec and IIMF are delighted to announce that Investec continues as Festival Core Sponsor for this 2021 season.


The season opens tonight with Artistic Director Wu Qian performing alongside fellow pianist Juho Pohjonen at West Horsley Place and continues until 8 October, including The Tallis Scholars, Paula Chateauneuf, Alexander Sitkovetsky, Jess Gillam, plus Carole Cerasi with poet Ruth Padel (see below for details).


Julia Pearson, IIMF Chairman: “The ongoing and loyal support that Investec gives us will provide crucial continuity as the Festival emerges from this challenging time to bring live music back to the Surrey Hills, and will help us to expand and develop our concert programming and educational initiatives.


David Richardson, Divisional Director at Investec Wealth & Investment and head of Guildford office: “The first year that I was involved with the Festival, I was blown away by the sheer musical excellence of the artists. That ability to deliver a world-class experience in a local area is very similar to the way we bring world-class investment management to the local audience in Surrey, and I am delighted that our relationship is continuing to flourish. We particularly admire and support IIMF’s ongoing community outreach work which embodies the core Investec principles of creating enduring worth, and living in society, not off it.
