NorfolkThe 16th North Norfolk Music Festival 2020

We have been left with no alternative but to postpone this year’s Festival until Wed 11th - Sat 21st August 2021. 

We realise this will leave a big gap this August for our regular audience members, many of whom plan their holidays in Norfolk around the Festival. 

Although we have been prepared for this moment, writing these words today is indeed a very sad moment for us and all the volunteers who have given their time so freely over the years. Thank you to them all.


We are hoping that many of the musicians who were to be with us this year will instead be in South Creake next summer, as this seems to us the most satisfactory, and certainly the fairest, way of doing things. Some of them have already accepted, but of course, considering the busy lives they all lead there may well need to be a few adjustments.  As soon as we are able to confirm our plans we will put the 2021 programme on our website and let you all know. 

TICKETS Those of you who have already booked tickets will automatically receive a refund by the same method you used to make your original payment.

FRIENDS If you have renewed for 2020 your current Friends’ membership is valid until 31 December 2020. However, in view of the circumstances we will automatically extend this until 31 December 2021 – you need take no action.

If you are not a Friend but would like to support NNMF, please do join us now so that we are in a stronger   position when the time comes to prepare for the 2021 Festival.

FUTURE CONCERTS AND EVENTS We still expect to give our Christmas Concert on Sunday December 13th at The Maltings, Wells-next-the-Sea; a piano recital by Tim Horton.

We will also be on standby to present ad hoc concerts in North Norfolk at short notice if circumstances       permit and will inform everyone by email as soon as we have any definite plans to share with you.

Patron: Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, CBE, PPRA
