Taking place in Thaxted’s magnificently spacious Parish Church, Thaxted Festival offers a relaxed atmosphere, the highest standards of performance from renowned professional artists, the superb natural acoustics of Thaxted Church, and a warm welcome in beautiful historic surroundings. Whether you are attending a single performance, making a weekend of it or packing in the entire season, we guarantee you a timeless musical experience!
With its origins in Gustav Holst’s 1916-18 Whitsuntide Festivals in Thaxted Church, Thaxted Festival attracts the very best of British and international musicians, in genres ranging from orchestral, chamber and vocal music to jazz, folk, big-band and swing, from early music to contemporary styles. Events for younger audiences, and educational projects with schools, have formed an important part of our mission over many years.
