Professional Concerts in the Weald
Beult Concerts was formed in 2013 by Hugh and Sally Sparrow. Our aim is to promote professional Concerts in the Weald of Kent, bringing the highest standard of musicianship to the area we live and love.
The River Beult runs from Headcorn to Yalding, weaving through Kent's rich fields, orchards and meadows.
