2021 Festival Launch
We're really excited to finally share with you the programme for this year's festival! As I said in my previous correspondence, due to the current restrictions in place we'll be proceeding on the basis that this year will be a socially-distanced festival. Audience safety is paramount and I hope you will remain understanding if we remain cautious in our approach. This does mean that we are experiencing a severe reduction in previous capacity and early booking is likely to be necessary to avoid disappointment as the 2019 Festival saw our first sold out concert. We'll be operating a waiting list for over subscribed concerts, and if it's clear that restrictions will be lifted in time to enable us to offer more ticket's we will be in touch. The 2021 festival sees the return of an outdoor picnic concert in our Saturday slot with a mix of classical and pop arrangements for all the family to enjoy. We'll be offering two performances of Dvorak's "American" Quartet on Sunday 4th July whilst my particular highlight will be a programme of English works including the Arnold Bax Oboe Quintet, a pioneering work for the repertoire which is a personal favourite. We have tried to make concerts accessible to all with multiple showings for two of our programmes including our first visit to St Mary's Church, Bentworth on Thursday 1st July at noon. Due to the difficulties in running events in these times, programmes will be roughly an hour in length with no interval (except Saturday), however we hope that our bar will be open before and after concerts.
Our mailing list will receive access to our first booking window until Friday 12th March 12pm when we will open booking to local residents before General Booking begins on Friday 19th March. Ticketing will be slightly different this year and take place exclusively through email & our phone line, full details below. Pricing £ 15.00 Adult (Saturday Evening) £ 12.50 Adults (Evening & Lunchtime Concerts) £ 05.00 Under 18s

I hope that you will be able to join us this summer for what will be a great series of concerts!
