2020 Festival

2020 Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival – Covid-19

For the past few weeks we have been monitoring the increasingly serious and unforeseeable circumstances of the spread of the Covid – 19 virus. Until quite recently we had hoped that the Festival that we had planned might still be able to take place between 25-28 June. It now seems clear that unfortunately we will not be able to present the 2020 Festival as originally programmed.

We also recognize that much might change between now and late June and we remain hopeful that we will be able to present some concerts on our Festival dates at the end of June, albeit not the full festival we planned. Should the schools have reopened by this time, we will also prioritise offering music workshops to local primary school children.

We will of course continue to monitor Government advice, although it is likely that our plans will not be confirmed until early June but, if we are able to present the 2020 Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival in some form, we hope you will be able to join us. Watch this space for updates.

Wishing you all good health at this most unusual and challenging time.

The Peasmarsh Team
