Marian Creaser

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that Marian Creaser died peacefully on Saturday 3rd February 2024.

Marian was involved from the very first festival in 1974 to the present day. For many of the last 50 years she has been at the helm and the continuing success of the festival is in no small part due to her drive, focus and passion.

She will be very much missed by the legion of festival volunteers, her piano pupils and the many people she has accompanied over the years.

Her funeral will be on Monday 26th February at 2pm at the Oxford Crematorium, Bayswater Road, Oxford OX3 9RZ. The family have requested family flowers only but anyone wishing to make a donation should make it to the RNLI or the Musicians Benevolent Fund.
