Cuckfield MusicFest12-20 June 2021
Our second festival takes place from 17th – 20th June 2021. In view of anti-covid restrictions this year’s Festival will be smaller and shorter than originally intended, and will now comprise six events over the four days. The performers will be either soloists or trios, and audience seating will be in accordance with the regulations required at the time. We remain indebted to Katie Derham who has kindly agreed to continue as our Patron.
Promotional Event March 2021
In this bleak business situation, sponsorship for the Music Festival in June is in short supply, and so in March there will be a fund-raising event. Pavlos Carvalho and Rebeteki Serenata with Andria Antoniou will give us an evening of beautiful soul searching melodies – the foot-tapping, finger-clicking rhythms and the nostalgia of Greek Rebitiko. This performance will be free of charge with the opportunity to donate to the cost of staging the Festival in June. We remain hopeful that it may yet prove possible to stage this live, but if not it will be online. Watch this website for further information in February.
Cuckfield Music Festival 17th – 20th June 2021
All the plans for a full-scale Music Festival were torpedoed by covid 19 and its offspring. Instead there will be six events over four days mainly involving performers who are, or have been, Cuckfield residents. They will appear as soloists, duos or trios, and we anticipate that some form of social-distancing audiences will still be in force.
Thursday 17th June – Lunchtime recital: The Joe Giddy Trio
17th June – Evening: Open Mic session
Friday 18th June – Lunchtime recital: Paul Gregory, probably with Howard Blake present
18th June – Evening: Jazz and Blues: Julia Roberts & Michael Hinton
Saturday 19th June – Dominic Ferris, by popular demand. (As social-distancing will limit the number of tickets available, Dominic has offered to give two different performances on the same day.)
Sunday 20th June – An Afternoon at the Opera with Jane Haughton, Amanda Buckland and Rebecca Milford
We are indebted to Katie Derham for most kindly agreeing to be the Patron of the Festival. "I’m a huge fan of live music in all its forms, and love the way festivals bring all sorts of different music makers together" As a Cambridge economics graduate the earlier part...
