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.
