Saffron Walden Music Festival

It is with great sadness that the Saffron Walden Music Festival Committee has taken the decision to postpone the Musical Festival planned for November 2020 until November 2021. Lack of clear information going forward regarding the rules around operating in public venues means it is not possible to agree the necessary commitments between ourselves and Saffron Hall, our adjudicators and our sponsors with any certainty. We therefore felt it better to plan for a great Festival in November 2021 rather than a difficult and complicated one this autumn and we hope you understand our reasons for this. We will issue an update as soon as we can confirm the new dates.

The Saffron Walden Music Festival is committed to providing opportunities for local young people to perform live music.  We will use our Facebook page to keep in touch over the coming months to provide more top tips for practice and performance and information about the next Festival.

We would also like to invite young people who have previously taken part in the Saffron Walden Musical Festival, or who would like to take part in the next one, to record themselves playing a piece and send it to us to share on our Facebook page. Your name would not be put up, just the video, to provide some musical inspiration to others during these difficult times. Please send your videos to

We look forward to seeing you all again in 2021,
Hilary Curtis
