The NCEM is a member of the European Early Music Network - REMA: Réseau Européen de Musique Ancienne. Based in France, the Network currently embraces 62 early music festivals/organisations across Europe, with the National Centre for Early Music in York, St John's Smith Square and the European Union Baroque Orchestra representing the UK.

On 21st March each year, festivals across the community celebrate JS Bach's birthday - and the first day of spring - with a pan-European series of early music concerts - watch this space for news of the 2017 celebrations.
In 2016, the NCEM is presenting a concert featuring Christophe Coin and Richard Boothby entitled L'Entente Cordiale. This Anglo-French programme examined the two sides of this sometimes complex, musically fascinating partnership as represented by Locke and Simpson v Ste Colombe and Couperin. The concert was recorded for broadcast by BBC Radio 3 and streamed via REMA Radio.
