- London Handel Festival

2020 – Handel and the Hanoverians

Coronavirus/Covid-19 Statement

Update – 6pm, Monday 16 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, rather than asking for a refund, to help us through these difficult times and so that we are able to provide some support to our artists.  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 that you wait for announcements from the individual venues, as we have not been handling the ticketing for these dates.
