We’re back on track

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. Although there are currently grounds for optimism, none of us can foresee how Covid-free we’ll be in six months’ time, so 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.  

This year's artists

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.

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.

Full details will be announced in June and booking opens at the end of July. We'll keep you informed in the coming months, but do check for updates on this Website. And please email us if you have any questions.
