Thaxted Festival 2021

We are delighted to announce that Thaxted Festival 2021 will take place over two long weekends: Thursday 24 June to Sunday 27, and Thursday 1 July to Sunday 4 July. During this time we will present nine concerts from leading artists. We will have reduced audience capacity and smaller-scale ensembles, to ensure appropriate distancing throughout all our events.

We will give more details of our plans in spring 2021. Stay in touch by signing up to our regular newsletters, and look out for our posts on social media. Members of Thaxted Music Lovers will have priority booking from early April, with general booking opening in early May. We look forward to welcoming you to Thaxted Festival 2021.
