Thaxted Music Lovers

Thaxted Music Lovers enjoy priority booking for all concerts, access to special events and other privileges. The income from this scheme enables us to maintain our high standards of musical programming, as well as supporting the educational activities which we run with local schools. We normally hold receptions for our Gold and Silver Music Lovers during the Festival, with the chance to meet some of our artists.

Social events during our 2021 season will be determined by any regulations in force at the time. Donation levels and benefits are shown below. If you are able to Gift Aid your membership, to increase your donation by 25%, please select that option when purchasing. (If you have booked online with us in the past two years, you can use your existing log-in. If not, please use Sign Up to create your account.)

Gift Aid your donation?

If you are a UK taxpayer, the value of your gift can be increased by 25% under the Gift Aid scheme at no extra cost to you. By choosing the Gift Aid option for your donation, you agree to the following:

YES, I want Thaxted Festival Foundation to claim Gift Aid on donations I make now, in the future and for the past 4 years.

Gift Aid is reclaimed by Thaxted Festival Foundation from the tax that I pay for the current tax year. If I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations, it is my responsibility to pay any difference. Thaxted Festival Foundation will reclaim 25p in tax back for every £1 I donate.

2021 Concerts

Thaxted Festival 2021 will take place over two long weekends: Thursday 24 to Sunday 27 June, and Thursday 1 to Sunday 4 July. Audience capacity this year will be reduced, to ensure appropriate distancing and safeguarding for audiences and performers.
