We'll be back in 2022
Normally at this time of year we’d be working hard behind the scenes putting the finishing touches to the annual festival performances. Last year performances weren’t able to go ahead, and we’ve seen extraordinary ingenuity as artists have taken music-making from the concert hall to online platforms.
But there’s still nothing like the buzz of live performances, and after careful consideration, we’ve decided that the Clifton International Festival of Music will return in the summer of 2022.
I’m already working with the festival team on a fantastic line-up of musicians bringing performances that will delight and inspire to Bristol next summer.
The last year has been an extraordinary challenge for so many people- but the end is in sight - and we can’t wait to welcome you back to our favourite venues once again and share the thrill of live music together once more.
Although we can't welcome you to our concerts in person, we'll be sharing highlights from previous festival performances throughout the summer online.
Thank you for your support
