Sarratt Festival of Music 2021


We were delighted to be putting on the Festival again in 2021. This year more than ever we all needed the joy that live music can bring.

Numbers were limited for each concert to encourage social distancing and to discourage mingling there were no refreshments available and only a short interval.

The festival was a great success, with enthusiastic audiences and even more enthusiastic artistes who were so pleased to be playing to live audiences again!

The Covid-19 epidemic has been nothing less than a disaster for performing musicians, many of whom saw their livelihoods wiped out overnight. As a gesture of goodwill towards all of our performers the Festival has made a donation to Help Musicians UK, an excellent organisation which provides financial support to performers.

If you are interested in their work please visit their website: helpmusicians.org.uk.

“Dear Sarratt Festival of Music,

I am writing to thank you for your generous donation to HelpMusicians. Owing to the Covid pandemic many musicians are looking at empty diaries for the foreseeable future but thanks to the support of people and organisations such as yours we are able to give them meaningful financial and moral support. HelpMusicians believes that music is a vital part of our cultural life and we want to do everything possible to enable live music to return to its previous vitality as soon as possible.

Many thanks again,

HelpMusicians"
