Our 2021 series of concerts

Welcome back to live music!! After an awful year we hope you are well and looking forward to an exciting programme of music this summer. It was a terrible year for musicians too and we have invited as many musicians as possible who had concerts cancelled last year. Below you can see our 2021 line up of concerts - please put the dates in your diary and spread the word.

Tickets are on sale online, by telephone and by post and must be purchased in advance. We aim not to sell tickets at the door. If you purchased a season ticket for 2020 your ticket is valid for all of our concerts in 2021. Season tickets for 2021 are available by post only - orders must be received by July 10th (please download the form from the tickets page).

Please listen to Liz Sowter launch our 2021 series on Dales Radio with Jonathan Greenwood (recorded 10th May 2021)

and a live interview on 18th May with Lee Moulsdale here (opens in a new window).

Help to access concerts/help with transport:

Would you love to come to concerts but need help with transport or mobility issues?

One of the projects we had planned with funding from the Coop Community Fund wass to provide transport from different parts of Wensleydale using minibuses. Because of Covid, this has not been possible and we have been forced to limit our plans this year but if you need help please contact us and we will see what we can do to help. If you can persuade a friend or carer, who would not otherwise be coming along, to bring you then we will happily provide them with a free ticket for enabling you to come to the concert. Alternatively we could provide a taxi for a small number of people in the local area (there are not many taxis about in Wensleydale so this is likely to be very limited and will need to be booked well in advance so get in touch ASAP). To discuss particular needs call Carol or Liz on 01969 663026.

Covid guidance will be posted here with instructions about arrangements before, during and after concerts - please check this page before attending a concert for details as the situation is changing all the time and we want people to feel and be safe.

All of our concerts are at St. Andrew's Church, Aysgarth as this is the best venue to ensure we have Covid-safe audiences. All concerts are full length and will have only a brief interval, but this year refreshements will not be served.

Please sign up for our newsletter for updates and to be informed of any changes in dates, programmes, cancellations (hopefully not) as the year progresses.

We are looking forward to seeing friends old and new at, what I hope you agree, is a fantastic line up of music and musicians.
