Southwell Music Festival is pleased to announce its 2021 return with a programme of classical and choral music due to take place at venues in Southwell from Wednesday 25 – Monday 30 August 2021.
The Festival has been gaining a national reputation with fans of classical and choral music. With many concerts taking place in the fine surroundings and acoustics of Southwell Minster, it offers a memorable experience for seasoned concert-goers and a warm welcome to new audiences, with the programme also featuring a family concert and a variety of free fringe events.
Southwell Music Festival Artistic Director Marcus Farnsworth said: “We are delighted to announce that the 2021 Southwell Music Festival will go ahead in August. The Festival will welcome world-class instrumentalists and singers to Southwell after what has felt like a very long wait.
“After the recent government announcements, it looks hopeful that we will be in a very different place in August to where we are now, and we will be monitoring the national situation closely to ensure we can present a festival that is stimulating, uplifting and also safe for both audiences and performers.
“Our Festival Friends have been tremendously supportive in helping us survive the pandemic. Our 2021 Friends Scheme will launch in March and we hope you will consider joining us. Your support will help us ensure a successful Festival in 2021 and to secure the future of the organisation.”
The full Festival programme will be revealed at a Launch event, due to take place on 28th May – look out for further details to be announced soon.
