The London Handel Festival is an annual celebration of the work of George Frideric Handel. Each year we present a critically acclaimed season of concerts, recitals, talks and walks, and everyone is welcome. Since the very beginning the Festival has been supported by those passionate about Handel’s music. A major aim of the Festival is to encourage and promote young talent.
We are delighted to announce that we are proceeding with our planned events in early December as free livestreamed events – on Wednesday 2 December at 7pm, we present the postponed 2020 Final of our international Handel Singing Competition, and on Thursday 3 December at 7pm, we present Messiah Reimagined – a unique blended performance of Handel’s masterpiece, combining live and virtual. Both events will be carefully managed, with all musicians safely distanced and behind closed doors, with no audience present, in keeping with current lockdown regulations in the UK.
