Fete de la Musique 2021

Imagine a sunny day in June in beautiful Saffron Walden with the town filled with live music,  free performances in different locations around the town and a range of food stalls.  This will be The Fête de la Musique on Sunday 20th June, 2021. This is Saffron Walden’s 3rd festival. 2015 and 2018 were highly successful events which brought hundreds of musicians and thousands of spectators into the town. 

This year’s Fete de la Musique will be a totally Covid compliant event. All venues are outdoors and due to the need to sanitise, etc. between acts we have fewer than in previous years but the quality is extremely high! This year’s programme includes two short puppet shows at Museum/Castle grounds.  Download programme.
