The virus defeated us last year, but we now expect to be back on track for our usual ten days of music and talks at this October’s Festival. Our aim is to present normal programmes to live audiences as far as conditions allow. Given the current situation with Covid, we’ll keep our plans under review, and tell you about any changes.
Our first care will be the safety of our audiences, performers and volunteers. We’ll do whatever’s necessary to achieve this, whether by social distancing, shortening programmes or dispensing with intervals.
We hope to see as many of you as possible again, to share the unique pleasure of hearing the live music we’ve all missed so much. But we know this won’t happen unless you feel safe and comfortable with our arrangements.
We're very glad that all the artists who were unable to appear at Little Missenden last year have agreed to be with us in October.
Some details are still being finalised, but a recital by the wonderful Imogen Cooper will open the Festival. Rachel Podger, the Ligeti Quartet and old favourites Joglaresa will also appear on the programme, among many other fine talents. We are delighted to be able to present a preliminary sketch of this year’s Little Missenden events so you can put dates in your diaries.
We hope to announce the full Festival programme in early August, along with any Covid-related safety information. Booking opens later in August. Meanwhile check for updates on the Website and keep in touch through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram or email us if you have any questions.
