Havant Music Festival returns for a June weekend

20/05/2021

The Havant Music Festival is returning for a 4th season this June, hosting a 3-day event for music aficionados who want to experience live music once again after a challenging year in lockdown.

Its 2021 line-up this year, all being well with the government’s roadmap, will feature a series of Acoustic Jazz and Classical Music concerts performed at venues across the Borough of Havant and a Live Stream Music Concert for local artists, singers, and musicians to promote and share their music with a wider audience.

Further information about the events and ticketing will be available on the HMF website soon.

June 2021 line-up

• Friday 25 June from 7-9pm – Live Facebook Music Concert for local artists across the Borough’s music scene to showcase their talents in collaboration with ChartHouse Music Studio and Websitesforyou Group.
• Saturday 26 June from 3:15-5pm – Classical concert with Peter Rogers (guitar) & Beryl Francis (piano) at St James Church in Emsworth.
• Saturday 26 June from 7:30-9:15pm – An evening of Acoustic Jazz with Astrid M Music at The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre in Havant.
• Sunday 27 June at 3:15-5pm – The Lost Harp Music of Victorian England by Elizabeth-Jane Baldry at St James Church in Emsworth.
• Sunday 27 June evening concert still to be announced.

Faith Ponsonby, Festival Chairperson said: “Many of us are desperate for live music & performing arts to return to the stage and really chase away the blues of COVID. So, Havant Music Festival is back at last after over 2 years of waiting, to give you a taster of much more to come in the future.

“This June, we will be live streaming some short performances of some talented local people on Friday evening, 25th June, and putting on two concerts on Saturday 26th June, there will be live performances of a classical music recital on piano and guitar from Beryl and Peter, and a performance from Astrid M Music, with Astrid’s unique repertoire of soulful acoustic jazz and pop to entertain you in the evening.

“On Sunday 27th June, Elizabeth-Jane Baldry will delight us once again with her magical harp, and then we hope our own Urban Vocal Group, who were the inspiration for the Festival nearly 5 years ago, will end the mini-series of concerts on Sunday 27th June with uplifting songs that will utterly amaze you. So come and enjoy real music once again at the end of June and watch this space for our exciting plans for this Autumn and Spring 2022.”
