LATEST NEWS

The 2021 May EMF is scheduled for the Spring Bank Holiday weekend (28 to 31 May) and will most certainly be going ahead as a “live” event if public gatherings are permitted. Due to the ongoing restrictions relating to COVID-19, the Festival will be rather different in format to our usual May Festivals, with more of an emphasis on chamber-music and song recitals. The full programme is available at this page.

Booking for the 2021 May Festival is now open to all — the online Box Office may be found here. Day and Full Festival Passes are available in addition to individual tickets to concerts and talks; and tickets can be held for collection at the Box Office or posted to you for a modest additional charge.

Tickets for the drinks reception and CD launch of EMR CD065, ‘Those Blue Remembered Hills’, which will take place as part of the 2021 May EMF, are now on sale to the general public. Please visit our online Box Office to book.

If you would like more details about our Friends’ Scheme, please follow this link to our ‘Friends’ Scheme’ page for a description of the tiers and their benefits, together with information about how to join.
