Beaminster Festival 2021
While we are unable to bring you the full Beaminster Festival in 2021, we are pleased to announce some exciting events being staged this year. The full festival requires commitments, agreements and contracts to be made many months in advance, which the uncertainties throughout this year have made impossible.
However, the Festival organisers have been working hard to arrange a number of individual events to be staged later in the year as follows.
Open Air Theatre at The Manor
Goldsmith’s She Stoops to Conquer brought to us by the Rain or Shine Theatre Company
Saturday 28th August
2:30PM to 5:00PM
Greenwich Trio – Piano Trio
The Greenwich Trio, based in London, has an international following having played all over the world and has been described by Bernard Greenhouse as the “New Beaux Arts Trio.”
Friday 17th Sept 7:30pm
Cordelia Williams - Piano
Cordelia Williams is recognised for the poetry, conviction and inner strength of her playing and the depth and maturity of her interpretations.

Changes to programme
