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.

Benefits extend outside our main season, with an exclusive ticket offer for our Launch Recital and Reception, as well as special pricing for our Autumn Recital. Membership is now open for 2022, which will entitle you to book tickets for our Launch Recital and Reception on Sunday 6 March. For details of this event click here. When you join online, you will receive a confirmation email with a link which will enable you to purchase Launch Recital and Reception tickets online.
