The artists were booked, the brochure was “print ready”, and we were looking forward to welcoming large audiences to our “new look” Festival.
As usual, planning had begun before last year’s Festival and we were ready for the busy build-up to our opening night on 10th July.
Despite all these preparations, the Trustees of the Festival have decided that they must cancel the Budleigh Music Festival for 2020.
We are of course very sad to have to take this decision, but we know you will appreciate that in the light of the current coronavirus situation in the country, there is no alternative.
We had a wonderful programme lined up for you, and some organisational changes to enhance audience experience. You can see the details of all the concerts planned on this website.
We are considering the feasibility of putting on one or two events later in the year, and we are already starting on our plans for 2021, when we may be able to rebook some of the wonderful artists who were scheduled for this year.
We will keep you in touch as our plans unfold, but for now, we send you, your family and friends our best wishes for good health in the coming months.
Keep safe and well.
Thank you for your interest and support.
