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 pleased to announce the outer dates and theme for the 2020 Festival: “Handel and the Hanoverians” (5 March – 10 April), and to include highlights below.  We will publish full details on our website in due course; please sign up to receive e-mail updates from us.  Please note that priority booking for Susanna at the Linbury Theatre at the Royal Opera House opens on 3 September for members of our Director’s Circle.  Booking for the main 2020 Festival will be from December onwards.  To find out more about becoming a supporter, please click here.
