2021 Festival News!

UPDATE: 1 MAY - Streaming tickets now available! If you're not able to join us in person this year then you can still listen in to the Friday and both Saturday concerts. Click Here For Tickets! 

UPDATE: 29 APRIL - Sunday 3pm repeat concert is confirmed as going ahead! For tickets please email festival@sacconi.com

UPDATE: 23 APRIL - Friday and Saturday concerts are SOLD OUT. We are selling tickets (£25 each) for a repeat concert on Sunday at 3pm of the Taneyev and Schumann Piano Quintets with Peter Donohoe. 

Live audiences are being capped at under the 50% allowance for the venue for everyone's safety. Seats are socially-distanced and masks will need to be worn throughout.

Thank you for your patience, we hope you understand the difficult decisions we have had to make over the last few weeks. We desperately want to bring live music back to Folkestone but our decisions have to be based on making sure the future of the Festival is secure for years to come.
