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.
Update, 9am, Tuesday 17 March
Following the UK Government’s recent announcement, we have taken the sad but necessary decision to cancel all future events in the 2020 London Handel Festival. The impact on a small festival like ours is devastating, especially for our many freelance musicians who rely on promoters like us for their livelihoods. We will be asking our audiences to consider making a donation to help us through these difficult times. We will be contacting all those who have booked tickets for our various events in the coming few days. We have a small staff, with only one full-time employee, so we cannot enter into individual correspondence for the forthcoming time, so we kindly ask you not to e-mail us.
Please note that for Handel’s Heroines and Serse we ask you to wait for announcements from the individual venues, as we have not been handling the ticketing for these dates.
