Beverley and East Riding Early Music Festival 2021

The Beverley & East Riding Early Music Festival 
Friday 28 – Sunday 30 May 2021

The Beverley & East Riding Early Music Festival was established in 1988 in order to bring residents and visitors together to enjoy an annual festival of concerts, lectures and creative learning opportunities – designed to highlight our shared traditions of music and history – celebrating some of the UK’s finest medieval churches.

The 2021 Festival reveals the music, and lives, of the people of the East Riding who followed the early pilgrims to the New World some 400 years ago.  

Guest artists include Stile Antico presenting their programme of the music based around those who undertook that momentous journey on the Mayflower; La Serenissima led by violinist Adrian Chandler and songstress Vivien Ellis returning with her very particular exposition of the music locked away in the roof timbers of St Mary’s Church, Beverley.  

Full details of the 2021 festival will be shared in the New Year as we begin to understand what the social distancing ‘rules’ might be by May.  Concerts are likely to be a mix of appropriately distanced ‘live’ audiences and online.  To ensure that you are completely up to date, please do join our free mailing list – details at the foot of this page.
