Beaminster Festival 26th June to 4th July 2021
We look forward to 2021 with optimism and are very excited to announce that the Beaminster Festival will take place 26 June to 4 July. Please make a note of these dates in your diary.
Luckily many of the performers who were unable to come in 2020 are very enthusiastic about joining us in 2021. Already reconfirmed are Emma Johnson, clarinet; the Carducci Quartet and David Goode, organ.
Whilst many artists have been inventive in managing to perform online, they all crave the interaction with a live audience. Festivals such as ours are hugely important in rebuilding their musical lives.
We had very much hoped to bring you a delightful cello recital as a ‘taster’, but had to postpone a November date, then a December date and still can’t quite commit to a February date. Be assured that if it does become possible we will send details firstly to those on the mailing list and as tickets would be very limited there will be priority booking for Sponsors, Donors and Friends.
We thank all those who generously donated this year despite us having to cancel. That said, next year will be challenging and all offers of help, either financial or practical, are very much needed and appreciated. To enquire about joining the Friends or if you are interested in being a Sponsor or Donor or wish to help in any other way, please email email@example.com
