The Festival’s Director Dr Joan Royle says: ‘It is with great sadness that we have had to cancel the 2020 Festival. We will all miss the lovely performances on long June evenings in our delightful village venues. We have been awarded an Arts Council grant, which is a fantastic tribute to the work of the Festival committee. Our kind sponsors are continuing to give their support, and I do hope you will be able to enjoy the Festival even more in 2021. Meanwhile I trust that you and yours will remain safe and well. We look forward to seeing you in the future.'
