• The City Of London Festival of mainly classical music is ending after 53 years. “Over the years the fundraising landscape has become ever more competitive and despite achieving support from a range of valued sponsors and supporters it has become increasingly difficult to attract the level of funding required to stage the annual festival”, said a spokesperson.
