Tickets for the ever-popular Great Bowden Music Fest have now gone on general sale.

This year’s show, which will go ahead from Thursday July 8 to Sunday July 11, will take a slightly different, Covid-safe format.

The festival will be made up of a series of shorter concerts with reduced audience capacity.

Music Fest organising committee chairman Tim Blades said: “Having organised a successful online festival in 2020, we were determined to do everything we could to run a live event this year.

“We are excited to be able to announce that we will live again this year.

“Planning it has not been easy and the safety of our audience and performers has always been our first priority.

“As a result, we are going to have our normal range of concerts starting on the evening of Thursday 8th July and running through to our finale concert on Sunday 11th July.”

He added: “However, all concerts will run straight through without an interval and will be no more than 70 minutes.

“We will maintain social distancing - and this will mean the number of tickets we can sell will be around half normal capacity.

“In the event that we cannot go ahead due to an extension of lockdown we will, of course, refund ticket money.”

The Music Fest will kick off with a classical concert on Thursday evening, including the Brahms Piano Quintet, followed by the musicals evening on Friday and a jazz trio on Saturday.

The finale concert on Sunday evening will include Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence.

There will also be a lunchtime concert on Saturday – and there may be an additional one on Friday.
