Cheltenham Music Festival reveals 2021 line-up

The Cheltenham Music Festival 2021 line-up has been announced – with ten days of performances featuring international names such as Sarah Connolly, Imogen Cooper and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

Beginning on Friday 2 July and continuing all the way through until Sunday 11 July 2021, Cheltenham’s Music Festival will be returning to Cheltenham.

After having to cancel last year’s festival due to the pandemic, live music fans can expect to hear spectacular performances from symphony orchestras, world-class ensembles, star soloists and up-and-coming talent. With highlights from the Albion Quartet, Matthew Barley and Kirill Karabits and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra of Wales, it’s an occasion not to be missed.

The events will take place at various locations around Gloucestershire including Cheltenham Town Hall, The Parabola Arts Centre, Gloucester Cathedral, Cheltenham Playhouse and more.

Head of programming at Cheltenham Music Festival, Camilla King, said: ‘I am tremendously proud that our team will bring world-class performances to Cheltenham this summer.

‘I have no doubt that, as the first note sounds in our beautiful Cheltenham Town Hall for the first time in nearly 18 months, it will be an unforgettable experience’.
