Thaxted Festival 2021

Our 2020 Festival in June and July could not go ahead due to the Corona virus pandemic.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported us over recent months: our Thaxted Music Lovers for their great generosity, our regular audiences, our artists, our volunteers, the Parish Church and the community of Thaxted.

We are pleased to announce that we have a complete programme of artists in place for our 2021 season. This will take place over the four weekends between:

18 June to 11 July 2021

We will release full details of our programme, together with ticketing and seating arrangements, in early 2021. Thaxted Music Lovers will benefit from advance information and priority booking periods.

Browse our missing 2020 season schedule for a flavour of our typical programmes. We look forward to welcoming you to Thaxted Festival 2021!
