Alan Hedges

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our Chairman, Alan Hedges. Alan had chaired the Festival since 2010 and was deeply involved in its running for years before that. As an individual he will be much missed by us all, while his deep love and enthusiasm for music in its many forms – and which underlay much of our programming - will be hard to replace.

Little Missenden Festival: 2022

The 62nd Little Missenden Festival is now almost over with only our Christmas event 'In Winter's House' with The Gesualdo Six on Fri 2 Dec remaining. The concert is currently sold out but please do keep checking back through the tickets link for returns if you would like to attend. You can also telephone 0333 666 3366 up to 24 hours before the event. More details can be found on our Tickets page.

It was wonderful to be able to run a full programme again without restrictions and we hope we managed to brighten your autumn with the exciting roster of artists outlined on our 2022 Programme Pages. If you would like to remember the festival in more detail, our photographer, Robert Piwko, has prepared a display of images from some of the events in this year's festival.

Our thoughts are already turning to what we might present next year, so please do keep an eye on the website for updates or sign up to our mailing list using the link on this page. The dates to keep in your diary are Fri 6 Oct to Sun 15 Oct 2023.

As well as checking for updates here please keep in touch through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram or email us if you have any questions.

Looking Back to 2021

With a thoroughly entertaining concert from the Mellstock Band in December, our highly successful 2021 festival drew to a close. Despite reduced audience sizes to facilitate social distancing and slightly shorter concerts to avoid interval mixing, the spirit of the festival remained firmly intact. We were able to run our usual number of events even including two duplicated programmes allowing more people to enjoy wonderful recitals by Imogen Cooper and Rachel Podger.

The 2021 programme can be revisited by following this link and many of the highlights of the festival can be seen in a panoramic display of images by our excellent photographer, Robert Piwko.

We look forward to seeing you on 2 Dec or at the 2023 Festival!
