Sue and I hope that everyone is continuing to keep safe and well during these difficult times and that some of you have had vaccines, and all are looking forward to the summer and autumn.
The decision has been made to move the Campden May Festivals to September in the hope that we can have live events without social distancing.
The Music Festival dates: Monday 6th – Saturday 18th September
Monday 20th will be the joint Festivals events with the Literature Festival getting into full swing on Tuesday 21st.
It is almost impossible at the moment to predict what the zeitgeist will be in September. For this reason, the choice of 2021 Festival books will be an attempt to consider some of the serious issues of recent years as well as to lighten up with a dose of twentieth-century nostalgia, and to include travel, art, poetry, and wildlife in the mix.
Some of our 2021 authors will have been at past festivals. Some would have been with us in 2020 and will have new or updated books out by September.
