In November 2020 we will turn 100 years old. We launched our celebrations with a ‘Countdown to 100 years’ concert in November 2019 (final line-up pictured below). It was a fantastic night, with some exceptional performances. We’ll be releasing clips and recordings on our social media throughout the year, so make sure you are following us on Facebook and Twitter to see them.
Our plans for 2020 were very much disrupted by COVID-19, so we will be celebrating the 100th festival in 2024 instead. (There were 4 years during the second world war, 1939 to 1943, when the Festival didn’t take place.) Watch this space.
