With regret...

Sadly, it was not possible for the 2020 Little Missenden Festival to take place last October.

The beautiful church of St John the Baptist is a unique venue which offers a very special acoustic and environment. It's one of the key attractions of the Festival. However, as long as COVID-19 remains an active threat to us all, it will not be possible to hold concerts there while maintaining appropriate distancing among audience members, performers and our volunteers.

We're also worried about our artists, for whom the Festival has always shown great care and concern. At a time when their earnings have collapsed, it is not easy to turn them away. We are, however, in discussion with them about performing in the future.

We long for the moment when live music returns to delight us all. And, as we emerge from these difficult times, we hope to enjoy your continued support for the Little Missenden Festival.

In the meantime, I do hope you can understand our position.
