latest NEWS - Winchfield Festival PLANS FOR 2021

We have all missed our ‘live’ music festivals and the summer that might have been in 2020, but we are happy to announce that plans are well under way to mount a brilliant Winchfield Festival in 2021.  We will show the programme in detail as soon as we can, so keep an eye on our ‘What’s On’ page.  And don’t forget to block out your diary for the whole week of 19th to 26th June 2021.

Garden concert in September 2020 was ‘pure delight’

On a sunny September afternoon, thirty lucky people at each of two concerts, safely checked in according to Covid-19 protocol and properly spaced, enjoyed an open air concert performed by Huw Wiggin on saxophone and Oliver Wass on harp.  Set in a private garden hosted by Tristram and Kirsty Cary, ‘live’ music once more filled the air at a quintessentially English open air concert.   ‘All proceeds went to support the musicians’ said Tristram, Chairman of Winchfield Festival, ‘and they expressed their delight at being able to perform ‘live’ for us.'

Huw Wiggin commented: ‘It was an amazing experience to perform to a live audience again. Oliver and I had a wonderful time, in beautiful surroundings and the atmosphere was so special. Thank you so much to Winchfield Festival and Tristram and Kirsty Cary for hosting the concert. Looking forward to Winchfield Festival 2021!’  Huw Wiggin, Commonwealth Musician of the Year in 2014 and Professor of Saxophone at the Royal Academy of Music performed a varied programme with Oliver Wass, the first harpist ever to win the Guildhall Gold Medal. 

We don't have a video of our Winchfield concerts but here they are playing at Breinton during summer 2020:
