2020 Festival Introduction

2020 Festival Guide

In the light of Government recommendations it is with deep regret and sorrow that the Festival Board took the decision to cancel the 2020 Newbury Spring Festival which was due to take place in May. The decision was made not only to ensure the safety of our audience, artists and members of staff but also due to the inability of our international artists to travel and venues being closed on Government advice.

We still hope it might be possible to stage a “Mini-Season” in the Autumn, subject to our ability to do so and national guidelines. As a Festival we have always been committed to music for the young and we very much hope to re-open our schools education programme when we can. Please keep an eye on our website for updates on our future plans.

We’re as disappointed as you must be that we’re not going to be able to present this year’s Festival programme.  So, we’ve put together a selection of videos from this year’s fantastic artists that you can watch and listen to in the comfort of your own home over the coming weeks. It may not be the programme as planned, but we hope it’ll give you a flavour of some of the spectacular work being produced by Newbury Spring Festival’s most recent selection of artists and performers.
