Our 2024 summer season will run from Friday 21 June to Sunday 14 July, with performances by world-leading artists across orchestral, chamber, soloists, choral, jazz and folk music, in the beautiful surroundings of Thaxted and its spacious Parish Church. It will include celebrations of the 150th anniversary year of the birth of Gustav Holst, whose Whitsuntide Festivals in Thaxted Church 1916-1918 are the inspiration for today’s Thaxted Festival.
Visit our Events Page to see previews of all our main season events. In addition, there will be an extensive programme of Festival Extras throughout the four weeks of the Festival.
Our Launch Recital in Thaxted Parish Church on Sunday 18 February will preview our summer season events, together with operatic excerpts from members of our featured opera company Wild Arts, who will be performing Mozart’s The Magic Flute on 30 June. Details and booking for the Launch Reception are in the 2024 Preview.
General booking for our summer season opens on 18 March 2024, and before that date Thaxted Music Lovers have priority booking from 19 February.
