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, and include an invitation to our Launch Reception in February, as well as special pricing for our Autumn Recital. Membership is now closed for 2021, but will re-open in January 2022 for our new season, when you will be able to purchase membership here.

2021 Concerts

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

“What a treat! I think I enjoyed it all the more this year as it was a welcome live experience. Thank you to all the organisers for their hard work!”
“We thought that it was brilliant that you managed to hold the festival at all and many congratulations are due to all involved.”
“Wonderful to hear live music of this standard again. The church venue and acoustics are wonderful!”
“The team worked a small miracle to get us together in such a situation. Well done to all!”
“Hugely appreciated the hard work of the team in very difficult circumstances.”
