It is with regret that we have taken the decision to cancel the music festival this year due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19. We shall be back next year. In the meantime do visit our Facebook page, where you will see items of interest to musicians and music lovers as well as updates about next year’s festival.
Below is a letter from our Vice-Chairman:
As you can imagine, we have been increasingly concerned about the possible effect of the Covid-19 on the Festival, which brings together people from across a wide area. Our priority has to be the health of our participants, audience, volunteers and staff.
Monday’s change in government strategy is expected to reduce the infection peak but it is likely that the social curbs will last through to July or August and include our Festival.
So, after much discussion, we have decided to cancel this year’s Wantage Music Festival forthwith. It is fairer to all to do this now rather than wait until it becomes inevitable. Those of you who have already submitted entries will be contacted and refunded.
Thank you for your continuing support of the Festival. We will, of course, be back in 2021, at the same time of year. Hope to see you then.
